I know, I know, I know we all want to keep this as peaceful as possible, but as the old saying goes, "it's easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission."and thats all they have to do to stop these rallies. a loophole needs to be found to get around things like this from happening again.

I think if we just got something together and screwed the system we would get our message out louder. Truck drivers in Italy and France just leave their trucks blocking the roads to cause as much disruption as possible or drive at an insanely slow pace in a convoy to tie up traffic. Many in the convoy on Monday wanted to do the same, but were told not to.
I understand and agree that we should be doing things the "right" way, but if they keep shutting us down they'll leave us no choice.
no it's not impossible to do. it just has to be done right. maybe if things were just done without advertising it out and about, then it would be possible to do. heck i don't know either. but it seems they are getting people to notice it and they don't want this kind of publicity during an election year. but with the good people here doing what they are doing and constantly pressuring a change in the way things are done now they can't ignore the problem forever. it's gonna take unity and everybody to agree on one thing and do it.No, no, no. I'm certainly not saying lets be violent because that's the last thing we need.
What I'm saying is, maybe trying to get permits for these convoys and rallies isn't going to work if they keep setting the bar too high for us to reach. If we just did it on our own (and stay peaceful) we might get more attention. If they keep shutting us down we're not going to get anywhere.
Look at Woodstock '69. 400,000 people got together, did it THEIR way, and stayed peaceful for three days. It's not impossible to do.
On the NYC Roll, The governemtn had canncelled it do to the Shooting the day Before.
Reverend Al Sharpton called for a day of Disobedience because of this, So thats why they yanked the permits, NYC was afraid of 100's of trucks rolling down Broadway all pissed off...
Just thinking out loud, maybe loading up in the big rigs and going to a protest isn't the answer. Clearly, States now realize they can use this to shut down a protest attempt.
Maybe rent cars or vans, and show up on foot for a protest?
Again, just thinking out loud here.
