Lawyers Challenge Democrats’ Plan for Protesters


— February 21, 2004

Attorneys are challenging a preliminary security plan for this summer’s Democratic National Convention that would limit protesters to a small patch of land virtually out of sight of the convention hall.

The plan would restrict protests to a triangle-shaped site near the FleetCenter, which attorneys fear could be obscured from view by buses and television satellite trucks, making demonstrations useless.
