Rights of Protesters | Yousef M Faroniya
In light of recent events, I thought that it would be a fitting time to review one of the fundamental American freedoms- public protest. Public protest is a right protected by the 1st Amendment to our nation’s constitution, specifically the clause addressing freedom of assembly.
This right is legally protected, but just like all constitutional amendments, they are not without limits. So, what types of actions are permissible and not permissible in Ohio?
1) Everyone has a right to peacefully protest on public property.
