Since when is it illegal to gather in public? 

Is it just me, or am I seeing a curious gesture from SLO governmental officials and the “community� that goes against an unalienable right we have to gather in public?

How can they (those who drafted and ran the ad in this week’s New Times — “The Party is Over�) be acting in good conscience when the following statement is published?

“Gatherings on streets, sidewalks and parking lots near campus and downtown will not be allowed.�

Since when are “we the people� not allowed to gather in public?

I understand the intent, but help me with manner in which “they� are going about their means to an end. Since when are “we� (the community) signing up for and endorsing police-state tactics?

The implied threat is tactless and not in the spirit of honoring the SLO citizenry, which by and large is quite functional and peaceful.
