Curfew Protest at City Hall
San Diego, CA — The curfew protesters are taking their campaign to City Hall. The Campaign to Repeal the Curfew will hold a protest in the City Hall Concourse on Monday, September 29, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The two-hour protest will feature a local ska band, called No Time, which played at a previous protest in Mission Beach.
“For the past three months, we have asked people throughout San Diego to help protect the freedom of law-abiding Americans,” said Dave Doctor, organizer of the campaign. “Now we will go directly to our politicians. They are the only ones who can restore our freedom because they are the ones who stole it.”
Doctor claims that the campaign is about tolerance. Though our politicians may believe that those under 18 should be home by 10 pm, he said that all people should have the freedom to set their own daily schedules.
“The curfew is as rude as a daily wake-up call from Susan Golding,” said Doctor. “Our intolerant mayor may believe that staying out late, drinking coffee, and eating junk food are harmful but that doesn’t mean these actions should be illegal. Teenagers, and every other American, should only be arrested if they are harming another individual or another individual’s property.”
In response to the campaign, one politician mentioned that, “it is too bad that a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch.” Doctor believes that the statement applies to fruit, not humans.
“It is possible to pick out and punish criminals without compromising the freedom of law-abiding Americans,” said Doctor.
After more than two months of protesting, the campaign has assembled a devoted group of volunteers. Doctor organizes the campaign and now relies on more than 20 volunteers to distribute flyers throughout the city.
“At first, two other Libertarians and I were the only ones promoting the campaign,” said Doctor. “Now, each week, new people call to help out. We eventually want to have student clubs at every high school. Teenagers must learn how to stop the government’s lifestyle laws.”
