The city of Portsmouth attempts to censor The Portsmouth Halloween Parade

From a founding member of "The Portsmouth Halloween Parade."

I think it’s absurd, this attempt to have the Halloween parade be anything other that what already is.

The overwhelming response to the ridiculous notion to "tone down" the Halloween Parade and make it a generic tasteless piece of crap event has proven once again that Portsmouth is made up of citizens that will not tolerate any infringements on their right to free speech and expression. This is a good and simple example that our civil liberties are more likely to be eroded under city ordinances than state or federal laws.

The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
