The Atlanta CNN Demonstration
When we went across the street to Centennial Park, two young men and their
lady friends approached us and asked if we had any literature. We gave them our last two
copies of our literature and stood on the corner wishing each other a safe journey home
when a Park Police officer came to us and said we could not stand there on that corner
with our picket signs without a permit. I informed him, truthfully, that I had inquired
about necessary permits and had gotten no response. We were informed that I had contacted
the wrong department; so we obtained the contact information from the officers (three by
this time) and agreed to leave.
In the Sunday, 5 December edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The article and photo below appeared. Our heartfelt thanks go to the reporter, Will Anderson, and the photographer, Brant Sanderlin, for writing the article and shooting the photo. Our sincere gratitude and respect go to Mr Leon Stafford, who took interest in the Dine'h struggle and assigned Anderson and Sanderlin to cover the demonstration. If you would like to thank any or all of them for their help, please e-mail them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
