Opposed: Demands to remove protesters ‘too much’
File photo.

Dear Richard,

While I agree the Sentineals deserve a break, I don’t agree that the Lord Mayor and council can “get these protesters out of our town.”

Whether you like it or not everyone is guaranteed freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. Your demand sounds a little too much like those who would run people out of town because you don’t like their race, colour or creed  … or demand as Mr. Trump and his supporters did that we “lock her up.”

Democracy is messy – get  used to it.
