The challenge by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) and Florida Legal Services (FLS) to restrictions that the University of Florida (UF) is attempting to place on anti-racist and anti-facist protesters against an upcoming speech by self-proclaimed White Nationalist Richard Spencer continues (see the original post here). After receiving our first letter the University of Florida (UF) Police Department (UPD) issued more details about their planned restrictions, which raise further concerns about whether free speech activities will be subject to improper law enforcement action.
Our continuing objections are outlined in our latest response to the UPD, which can be read here. The bottom line is this:
"UF needs to provide the same constitutional rights to freedom of assembly, speech and association to those who want to oppose Richard Spencer’s racist beliefs as it has to Richard Spencer in providing him a venue where he is free to exercise those rights."
