Charlotte is so much more open than Tampa. There is no permitting, anyone can express themselves as long as they don’t impede others.
Park Superintendent Peter Cook asssured us that there would be no problems with us setting up our sculpture, but when we arrived the Police quickly intervened.
It was a matter of the safety of the Occupy Charlotte people, our vehicles could hit them if they woke up and left their tents.
In the any event, we were able to set up the sculptures with no problems.
