Can you get arrested for protesting?
Can you get arrested for protesting by walking around with big signs and everything? If so, what reasons? If you can, should we be angry because we are just using our freedom of speech?
Additional Details
It is at a public place, we have 10-15 people, we are ll under 18, and all were going to do is walk around on the sidewalk with signs

You cannot get arrested for protesting in a public place, such as a public square or a street. However, if you enter the building, the foyer, etc., you are trespassing and can be arrested.
I saw it happen just a few days ago...some protesters entered the lobby of a building because it was raining outside and got themselves arrested like that.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Yes, if you are trespassing. If you are making a point and you aren't standing ON anything that the group you are protesting against owns, you are perfectly fine.

Of course you can.
The freedom you "feel" to protest is there only because you're tolerated when you express it.
If your subject matter was "sensitive" to the politics or issues of the day then you may find your freedom otherwise curtailed.
The law of the land has mechanisms to remove your rights of protest on the public streets with infringements for ..loitering..illegal gatherings..incentment to riot..obstruction...and more beyond my knowledge I'm sure.
Anti religious comments and racial slurs will bring your protest to close quite quickly too and on top of that you will be prosecuted.

Your freedom to protest is really only to whisper quietly into the back of your hand,,,,that's how it is these days.

Even this media is forensically policed for breaches of Its operating franchise and your 'free" speech can be deleted and your access to it denied.

So you're but a dog on a leash allowed to venture only to the extent at which it strains.

That's what the wars were fought for is it??

If something violent happens, yes, you can get in big trouble because you are part of the scene. But protesting is allowed.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



xyb123
The only way that you can get in trouble is if you are being violent, or your words instigate violent actions. Other than that go ahead and protest away.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



volleyballchick
You can only if you are on private property and the owner(s) of the property want you off. It is tresspassing.

You have the right to freedom of speech, expression and to assemble. So if you are protesting something, then you are fine. You can't be on private property or block the access to that property. That is when you get arrested.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



Bret J
No. If it's not on a residential property. That's why we have freedom of speech. Well unless you live in some sort of dictatorship. But if the protests get out of hand you could get charged with other things.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Depends on how far you go.

You could get arrested for disrupting the peace.

If you're sitting there with a pit fire and I'm sure you can go to jail for that. But -- Idk just walking around with signs... Like I said before -- it all depends on how far you go!

I hope you don't!

If it's a peaceful protest on public property, you can't get arrested. You can really only get charged if you're on Private Property. You wouldn't be getting charged for Protesting, you'd be getting charged with Trespassing.

It kind of depends on where you,re doing it and how many of you there are. If it,s just you, and you,re in a public place, you,re probably okay so long as you keep your clothes on and don,t get violent. If there,s a whole boatload of you you,ll need a permit!

When you say, " . . . and everything", that leaves things wide open as to what you can be sued for. If you do property damage, well, you can get sued. If you do personal damage, you can get sued. And maybe, if your obstructing commerce by protesting in front of someones' business, or disturbing the peace by protesting in a residential neighborhood, you can probably be sued then too. Angry? Try being responsible. Then you won't have to worry about being sued. God Bless you.

Nope, only if it gets violent or you damage property.

you cannot get arrested for protesting.

You can get arrest for blocking the sideway or street,
If your group is a certain size you must have a permit or be arrested.
If you fail to follow an officers directions to disperse you can be arrest.
If you throw things at cops you can be arrested.

You cannot be "charged" for protesting, but you can be charged with disturbing the peace.

If police want to get rid of you, they'll find something to charge you with... even if its just loitering or something lame like that.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



stung4ever
If you do it peacefully, generally no. There are exceptions though. If you do it on private property, you can be arrested. If you're one of those morons that do it in the middle of the road, stopping traffic, you can be.
