Judge Blocks Central Park Protest

HeadlineAug 26, 2004

In New York, a State Supreme Court Judge has ruled the city of New York can ban the anti-war group United for Peace and Justice from rolling a massive protest in Central Park on the eve of the Republican National Convention. United for Peace and Justice first applied for a rally permit over 14 months ago. The group has announced it will still hold a massive march on Sunday past Madison Square Garden that is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of protesters. Last night the group met with police and finalized the march route. Today United for Peace and Justice will officially announce the march will end in Union Square. There will be no organized post-march rally.
