Dear Mr. Stancil, January 23, 2012
Occupy Chapel Hill/Carrboro affirms that no government –local, state, or national– shall make a law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or prohibit the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
These are unalienable, intrinsic rights as acknowledged by our Founders. No government–and no government employee– can abrogate or mitigate these rights. We require that the Towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro also acknowledge the very first amendment to our Constitution. Codes, regulations, laws, or punitive measures which are in violation of these inherent rights are by their nature unconstitutional.
