If you buy a permit to protest, or only protest in "approved zones", you are NOT protesting anything. You are playing by their rules and paying them for the privilege. Think about it: you are literally paying the city to heavily-spice your face.

By attending these "protests," adding your name face and personal info to an anti-establishment event on social media, you are only making yourself into a target; easily manipulated and easy I keep tabs on.
