Group: Detroit riverfront restrictions reasonable
The nonprofit group that manages Detroit's riverfront walkway says its restrictions on organized activities including protests are reasonable.
The Detroit River Front Conservancy on Thursday released a statement after the American Civil Liberties Union earlier this week said the group was violating the First Amendment by preventing people from holding protests. The conservancy says that's not the case.
The ACLU said a security guard ordered a small group of people taking part in an anti-war march along the Detroit River Walk last summer to stop. The ACLU said that that violated the free speech rights of the group Women in Black, and it asked the conservancy to change its policy.
Women in Black said it wants to march at the river Saturday afternoon. The conservancy said Thursday it welcomes the planned march.
