Public Forum, a Safe Zone, a Declaration for Free Speech

The Public Forum safe zone campaign is falling under a general public protection declaration that also includes a sister campaign for a safe zone for homeless. The latter is called the Emergency Shelter Safe Zone. Individuals or groups can use one or both signs to display in a public place where they declare there rights to free speech and/or emergency rest. People can declare that they’re in a safe zone to city and police workers who approach them. If they are arrested, harassed or have property searched or taken they will be able to register the incident on line for a common law suit. The registration site is not yet active but I will link to it when available.
