    How is the Trump protest related to Streetsblog?

  • johnaustingreenfield

    It’s somewhat tangential, but we are interested in the use of public space for protests.

  • Focuser

    But that article doesn’t even mention public space. Whether they were on the street, sidewalk, in a POPS or if they were obstructing or obstructed. This article is about Trump.

    By this logic you should also be posting this article, since even though it’s not mentioned, we can assume they used roads, trains bikes or some for of transportation to get there.

    I know it’s cool to jump on the anti Trump bandwagon, but by introducing your own non-streets related political views, you degrade your other coverage and credibility.
