Description

let me start off by saying i am in no way opening this issue to debate whether abortion should be legal or not, so please do not use this space to preach one way or the other.

although i personally find the protesters at planned parenthood (and now often by the peabody museum) very offensive, i am reporting this issue on the basis of what is legally their right and what is not.

when i protested the start of the iraq war, the group i was with was told by an officer that we are allowed to hold a sign. but that since we do not own the property we were standing on, we could not affix signs to posts, or lean them on trees, or lay them on the ground, etc.

this is what the protesters are doing on edwards street and sometimes whitney. they spread at least ten posters on property that they do not own.

i'd like some clarification on what their rights are, and if we can ask them to tone down their presence if they are not legally allowed to take over the block.
