Proposed National Mall Protests Restrictions Revoked
What do you think of a plan to impose fees for protesting on the National Mall?
In 2018, the Trump administration unveiled a proposal to both impose heavy fees on groups which frequently hold protests on federal park lands in Washington, as well as to close off large chunks of public space usually used for public protesting.

However, after they received over 140,000 comments from angry citizens who believed this proposal was in violation of their First Amendment rights to free speech and peaceable assembly, the National Park Service announced that it “was ending its effort to rewrite the regulations that govern speech and demonstrations on public lands under federal jurisdiction in Washington.” Do you think that there should be stricter guidelines for protests that take place on federal land?
