The weather in Fort Lauderdale was awesome today, clear sky, the sun was shining and there was a nice cool breeze.
For months now I have been kept off the sidewalk in front of the Federal courthouse, in fear of the threats by the Marshals that I will be arrested. So, I have to stand at the back of the courthouse building, across the street at the parking garage. But I think that this may soon change. I will keep you all posted.
After an hour at the Federal courthouse I walked into town handing brochures out as I walked.
I stopped outside the Broward college / FAU campus at 111 E. Las Olas, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I was standing outside the building on the sidewalk distributing brochures to the college students, when again the male security guard was shouting out of the door no soliciting. I explained that I am not soliciting. Then the female security guard S Blakely, RST Supervisor came out yelling at me, that I can not give out my brochures. On a previous encounter she was told by her campus police lieutenant that we were quite within our rights to hand out the brochures due to the Florida Constitution freedom of speech. She got on the radio and called for the police. I carried on passing out brochures to students for 20 minutes, then left because the police did not show.
I headed over to the Broward County Courthouse at: SE 6th Street Fort Lauderdale Florida. Here there was a line of people waiting to get into the courthouse.
Today I handed out 540 brochures another great day of FIJA activism.
