    the Citizens in total. Therefore, citizens have the RIGHT to assemble on lands owned by the citizenry. You can have all the papers written, books printed, judges barking, etc., but bottom line:

    The Right to peacefully assemble on public land is sacred. Public land belongs to all citizens.

    Yes, there can be safety regulations, etc. I do not dispute that. What I am saying, is that the governmental entities, cannot forbid peaceful assemblage on public land. The governmental entities don't own the public  land. The people own the public land.

    Hope has a hole in it when Republicans come, bringing shackles and sorrow; branding their greed on the backs of the poor. - Wendy Connors
