As we get closer to the big demonstration in Sacramento, we just wanted to give you a few tips about protesting at the California Capitol.
Apart from the obvious (no weapons, no hazardous waste dumping, no alcohol and no fires allowed), there are some rules to follow at our June 10th Rally that the Capitol police will enforce:
- Keep it short: Signs, posters, placards, and banners are not to exceed thirty inches in size — I think that means 30” x 30”. Please note that sign handles can be only 18” long.
- Don’t plant it : Signs, posters, placards, and banners must be hand-carried and not stuck in the ground or taped/stapled to buildings or trees, AND the signs can’t impede pedestrians visiting the capitol.
- Keep it clean: Please pick up trash! This is an all-volunteer operation and we can’t afford to hire a clean-up crew! Our permit requires that we ensure that grounds are left clean after the event. We will be charged for any clean up required.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the protest on Wednesday!
