Q. Are thereGovAbuse rules for protest signs?
A. Yes and no. The following serve as reminders as it is assumed all protesters carry
their signs in a decent / professional manor. NO profanity or extreme photos.
Example; (no pics of baby giving "3rd finger" at CPS).
* Freedom of speech is important, as is good judgment.
* Unlawful activities or obscene speech are not protected, under the First Amendment.
Q.After reaching the location, where should we protest?
A. On our taxpayer paid,‘public’ sidewalk. Do not block apedestrian’s ability to freely walk
and/ortheir ability to enter / exit any building. Includes; sidewalks and entrances into
parking lots.Do not block vehicular traffic including: streets, driveways or parking
lots. Safety first; do not stand in any location where a vehicle has the ‘right of way’.
Q. Are we notifying police or Sheriff?
A. Yes. 3 days to 1 week prior to the protest, your PLC will make a courtesy call to alert
officers that a peaceful protest will be assembled and assure our police / sheriff officers
are aware in advance of any calls alleging a possible "rumble" being underway avoid any
'concerned citizen calls' when people are gathering. Do not forget how many police are
also members of GovAbuse and are often targeted for injustices by the system(s)
involved with the family courts, same as you. The day of the protest, police also have a
job to perform, which includes keeping protesters safe as well.
Q. Can I show up to the protest without notifying anyone in advance?
A. Absolutely, yes. Introduce yourself, all will be happy to have you on board!
HAVE A GREAT AND SAFE PROTEST!!
