Local Group Against Common Core Denied 1st Amendment Rights @ Easley Christmas Parade


On Saturday December 7, 2013, a local chapter of SCPIE (South Carolina Parents Involved in Education) was denied their 1st amendment rights … being told by a representative from Dunburk's Events in Easley that the peaceable group would not be allowed to carry signs in the parade because the "group was political".

Upon reading the city ordinances … there is no such restriction for parades or even protests. Furthermore, if politicians participated in the event - are they not political?

When the group leader informed the event coordinator that the SCPIE group was peaceable and non-partisan and that their application had been accepted weeks before the event, the event coordinator became defensive and said he would go get the police and the mayor.

See the video and a full story that's getting national attention:
