Authorities attempt to silence First Amendment during JFK 50th anniversary

Dallas Police have banned free speech in Dealey Plaza for the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK, threatening to fine people if they hand out fliers or display signs within a 75 feet radius of all major roads in the area.
Authorities claim the handing out of fliers or displaying of signs represents a violation of two city ordinances. Activists are of a different opinion, believing that the First Amendment trumps any such ordinance.
Mainstream media and other press outlets who will be regurgitating the official narrative behind the death of JFK are not subject to the same draconian measures and have been granted free access to Dealey Plaza. There isn’t even a “free speech zone” in which ordinary Americans can voice their opinion.
During a confrontation with Dallas Police last night, Alex Jones and assembled free speech activists were told they would be ticketed if they exercised their First Amendment. Protesters chanted, “hell no, we won’t go!” as police left the scene.
After the confrontation, Alex Jones left the area but activists who remained as well as Infowars cameraman Rob Dew overheard Dallas police discussing plans to arrest the radio host. Police in riot gear subsequently arrived as part of an effort to intimidate protesters.
Jones has made it clear that he will stand against Americans being treated like pro-democracy protesters at Tiananmen Square, and will file a lawsuit against Dallas Police for violating his constitutional rights if they attempt to stop people from exercising their free speech.
Alex Jones and fellow free speech activists will meet at Ferris Plaza Park, 400 S. Houston Street, and march north to Dealey Plaza at 4pm today.
Tomorrow at 11am, activists will meet at Belo Garden, 1014 Main Street and march west to Dealey Plaza.
