Protecting the right to protest: Toledo church rallies against proposed "anti-protest" legislation

A local group held a protest in favor of the right to protest on Saturday. It may sound strange, but the organizer says they want to raise awareness about legislation that they say will erode Ohioans' rights to be heard. The First Unitarian Church of Toledo says they wanted to make sure citizen's First Amendment rights were protected. Reverend TK Barger is the senior minister at the Church. He says there is currently legislation in the Ohio General Assembly that puts restrictions on public protests. "Not only does that restrict free speech, but it is also poorly drafted legislation," said Barger. Senate Bill (SB) 33 is one of five bills the group claims are vague and interfere with constitutionally protected forms of public protesting.
