NYCLU Testifies Against Closure of Central Park

Compiled from the Open Newswire | At a hearing in front of the City Council Parks and Regulation Committee, the NYCLU blasted plans to shut Central Park to all but 6 large-scale events a year.

"Central Park should be as accessible to rock music and political protest as it is to the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic," the NYCLU testified. "It is our town square and must be opened to all regardless of the medium or the message."

Today, New Yorkers For Free Speech plan a peaceful rally on the Great Lawn to protest the city plan. "Join with your neighbors in lighting a candle for freedom. A classic Do-Wop group will perform with other special guests." Meanwhile, there is a debate on our Open Newswire about effective tactics for stopping the Central Park closure.

NYCLU | The New York Civil Liberties Union today testified that the proposed Parks & Recreation regulation to restrict protest activity on the Great Lawn in Central Park, ostensibly to protect the grass, is misguided and unconstitutional and threatened to sue if the proposal is adopted. The NYCLU said in testimony before the Parks & Recreation Committee of the City Council that the proposed protest ban which restricts the number of non-City approved events to just two per year, neither of which can exceed 50,000 people, amounts to a violation of the rights of protesters. more...  2 Comments

MeetUp's Fees

Xavier | Yesterday, Meetup Inc. the social networking site started charging fees of 19/month to have their groups meet and this has led many group managers to quit as organizers.

As a manager for the New York Book Club, a small group whose few members fluctuate from month to month I have decided to step down as an organizer as many other organizers that I have spoken with plan to do, rather then pay the new mangers fee.
