Check this out: As organizers of this years May Day Parade, the decision was made to get a permit for the event this year, to make it more inclusive for folks at greater risk of arrest. Despite our attempts at doing things the ‘correct’ way, the city and the police have failed to behave in a legal or respectful manner.
The Richmond Police are infringing on our right
to free speech by demanding that we produce the funds to pay for off
duty police officers in order to march in the street. We have chosen
not to set that precedent for future marches by any organization.
Please sign this petition, more actions will be announced late this
evening. Please refer to http://maydayrva.org for more
