the powers that shouldn't be are trying to scare us with this planned-emic. calling their bluff by showing we are not scared or intimidated is the way to go. they did the right thing.

It would be interesting to see if it inspired other protests around the country, it looks like it did.

I'm in favor of them. I'm also worried that they're arguably illegal and thus ban-bait here. I would like to see saidit tolerate calls for peaceful protests in public places even if banned.

I haven't heard of any being explicitly declared illegal, and many are unquestionably legal, e.g. people who protested inside their vehicles while maintaining social distancing. They are also nonviolent, so I see no issue
