Denver Police Issue Flyer For Convention Protesters

August 19 2008, 6:27 AM

The Denver Police Department has issued its final flyer (pdf) with advice for protesters at the Democratic National Convention. Here's a sample:

What should you do if an unlawful assembly is declared and a dispersal order given? Listen carefully to any police order to disperse. Even if you are not engaged in unlawful activity, you are subject to citation and/or arrest if you do not leave the area defined by the police in their lawful order to disperse. For example, in a situation where some individuals are blocking a street and some individuals are walking on the sidewalk, the police may order everyone to leave the area.

The Denver Post reports that Cindy Sheehan will be among those coming to protest. Someone needs to make sure she gets a copy.
