The fundamental basis of civil rights is to be clear that no matter the situation, no person or authority should disrespect or compromise your rights. So, for example, we all have the right to express our complaints without fear of reprisals or censorship. This is a pillar of democracy in our country.
According to the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, all citizens have freedom of expression of their own beliefs, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly. This amendment includes freedom for public practices such as “peaceful” protests. The word “peaceful” ensures that the rights of the people who demonstrate as well as those of the rest of the community are respected.
It is important to be clear that people who decide to protest must abide by government regulations to ensure the common welfare. These regulations may include standards for the place, time, and manner in which protests are carried out. The Court has also held that requiring permission for a peaceful protest in advance is constitutional, as are additional requirements for gatherings held near large public events. For example, a city may require protest organizers to provide details on how the protest will take place.
However, a major exception to the permit requirement is when protesters gather in response to breaking news. For example, protests immediately after an event do not require a permit.
