    Charlotte Prepping for Occupy Wall Street at DNC

    In John Heilemann's cover story "2012=1968?
    ," he wonders whether Occupy Wall Street protesters will do to Charlotte's Democratic National Convention in the summer of 2012 what demonstrators did to the Chicago DNC in 1968. The North Carolina city, sometimes called the "Wall Street of the South," is not taking any chances, and is already working to
    pass an ordinance
    that would make occupying downtown spaces with tents a "public nuisance," in addition to banning "noxious substances," padlocks, and other camping equipment. The fact that it would knock out the city's current overnight demonstrators is an added bonus.
    Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx said dubiously last month that the rule, which could be enacted in January, is not aimed at a specific group. "Unlike many cities that have well-developed regulations governing protest activity, our local regulations contain gaps that need to be filled," he said. But a memo about the ordinance does note, "The recent issues related to camping on city property have further amplified the need to review whether the city wants to regulate this activity during the DNC." A city councilman added of the current Occupy Charlotte faction, "Once those ordinances go into effect, those overnight stays will end."

    The MONSTER the Dems created, cannot be contained, this should be FUN to watch the people Obama and Co. say they support, making the DNC convention into a circus.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Just a reminder when all of this started that I noted that it was something that Obama was not going to used to his advantage.

    Well at the DNC, protesters are confined to cages miles from the site anyway; so it's not like there will be much of a difference. And maybe they'll learn from the RNC last time and go pre-arrest people they suppose to be trouble makers.

    As long as there are morons that dont get that you dont have the constitutional right to do whatever, wherever, then hell yes...a cage is a good place for them. Follow the rules...follow the laws...protest to your hearts content.

    Freedom...you keep saying this word...I do not think it means what you think it means.

    2004 Democratic National Convention - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    One of the most controversial "counter-terrorism" measures was the declaration of a designated free speech zone for protesters, limiting where and when protesters could exercise their first amendment rights. Protesters through the American Civil Liberties Union mounted an unsuccessful lawsuit for the right to protest outside of the designated free speech zone, which the group claimed was unconstitutional. FleetCenter access promulgated tight security measures that frustrated even the news media. Credentials enabling reporters to enter and exit the meeting became the subject of strict rules forbidding the act of borrowing and sharing such passes, a common practice for the major media outlets in the past.
