It’s About Noise, but What About Space?

The noisemakers don’t always use a stage, sometimes opting to simply stand on the sidwalk. The Nov. 19 featured boards on crates and several chairs. While the group does not need a permit to assemble or make speeches, my understanding from our Aug. 29 community meeting is they can’t assemble this stage on a public space without a permit.

They noisemakers did not use the amplifier, although it was present at the foot of the stage.

Their speech projects toward our neighborhood’s houses, which are visible beyond the noisemakers.
