Stop the anti-occupy, anti-camping, anti-homeless ordinance

    1. Petition by

      Occupy Asheville

If passed, this ordinance will be a direct repeal of our constitutional right to assemble, it will grant police the power to enforce it at will, and it will put the public at risk while targeting specific groups and individuals.

      so what is this? its 4:30 in the morning right now, and im tired, and im not sure what this is. did i sign a document saying that i agree with the police arresting us for assembling, or did i disagree with it? how can this law pass? who in their right mind would sign a petition to stop people from excercising their constitutional rights? i hope i am just tired and confused, and that i signed a "hell no you cant arrest us for protesting" bill. please, a little clarification on

      a latenight.

      Corporate money so easily buys governmental influence, while ordinary citizens have few channels to effect change. These ordinances attempt to even further narrow citizens' right to free speech and assembly.

      Not only is this a constitutional issue, but, after attending the memorial service for those who died in 2011 as a result of homelessness, I am concerned that next year will see a higher number of names Ironically, the ordinances concerned with "safety" will create a safety issue of its own.
