There are right ways and wrong ways to protest. Simply blocking traffic without a permit is definitely the wrong way.
Protests are breaking out across the country, as many people who voted for someone other than Trump can’t understand why they don’t always get what they want and think they’re part of a “movement” by continuing to protest the election results.
According to , Attorney & Consultant on state & federal laws and regulations:
In general, demonstrations and other forms of public protest are permitted. The right to peaceably assemble is guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. However, this does not mean that every demonstration, protest or gathering can be done at any time of the day or night and at any location one chooses. The reason for this is because there is a “balance” struck between the citizens’ right to lawfully assemble and the time, place and manner in which the assembly is to be done.
Therefore, the right to assemble for a public purpose is permitted provided that the group assembled abides by any applicable laws against things such as traffic congestion, blocking the sidewalks, littering, excessive noise, and generally speaking, any other local laws or ordinances such as creating a public disturbance which might be forbidden by law.
As infuriating as they may be, sometimes, they make us laugh.
