Looks like Jim Longstreth is organizing a protest of the St. Petersburg Times‘ lawsuit against the City of St. Petersburg over the solicitation ban is planned for this Sunday.  From the Facebook page:

This is a peaceful protest against the St. Pete Times regarding the ridiculous lawsuit against the city of St. Petersburg regarding the new ban on street solicitation. This ban includes but is not limited to street vendors selling newspapers, panhandlers and fundraising initiatives. The ordinance prohibits any transaction between pedestrians and motorists on major streets.

The new ordinance is aimed at improving PUBLIC SAFETY!

Lets reiterate to the St. Pete Times what one of our city officials encouraged of them:

“Spend your time and money on innovative methods to stay competitive in an ever-changing media and not on attorneys suing your city and forcing us to spend ever-diminishing tax dollars defending what your community wants” -council member Jeff Danner

WE NEED HUNDREDS willing and able to join us in protest of this lawsuit against our city

SPREAD THE WORD…..SHARE ON YOUR WALL AND INVITE YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, NEIGHBORS AND LOCAL BUSINESS OWNERS
