  •  A group large enough to block streets or even (0+ / 0-)

    block access to the NYSE?  Sure, for that kind of thing, they'll restrict where you are, to make sure that you don't block access to the NYSE or that you don't block streets.  

    But on any given day, a few people can stand in front of the NYSE with signs, as long as they don't block anybody.

    •  The barricades we blocking off the streets (4+ / 0-)

      not people. They put up barricades to restrict how close we could get to the exchange.

      was mayor.  I used to work at Smith Barney a long time ago. There were often people protesting on the edge of the sidewalk and the private security came and literally made every one of them leave, every single time.

      Never a word was said about it and there was never a story in the news either.  And if the police actually responded (which would never happen unless the situation got out of control–IOW they wouldn't leave) it would be to defend the corporation.

      The law is useless when there's big money involved.

      The priest said, "Today's sermon is called 'Liars', but first I have a question. How many of you have read Chapter 66 in Matthew?" Nearly every hand went up. "You're just the group I need to speak to," the priest said. "There's no such chapter."
