1. There will be a discussion of the dancing ban and a screening of the movie Footloose on Sunday at 7 pm at 116 Old Pittsboro Rd in Carrboro. (Thanks, Michal.)
2. Please sign the petition below to support free expression on the lawn of Carr Mill Mall.
This is a special-rules OP post. For discussion, please join us at http://orangepolitics.org/2006/08/live-on-the-lawn . Any non-petition-signing comments will be removed. E-mail validation is still required. Commenting below will indicate agreement with the following statement:
We, the undersigned, petition Weaver Street Market, as an important and vital tenant of Carr Mill Mall, to reconsider the position that it and Carr Mill Mall has taken regarding public expression on its lawn. This position, enumerated in their press release (released Tuesday, August 22, 2006) calls for scheduled Ã¢â‚¬Å“Live on the LawnÃ¢â‚¬Â performances rather than the right of patrons and Carrboro residents to continually use the space in respectful, appropriate ways. As consumers and consumer-owners of Weaver Street Market, we reserve the right to request Weaver Street Market to advocate for Bruce Thomas, and for all others who engage our community with dance, words, motion, music and song.
PLEASE INCLUDE: Name - Consumer-Owner Number, if applicable - Comments, optional
