In a posting on Occupy's Boise's website Monday, the group says the ACLU joined the group in filing to challenge new rules prompted by Occupy's encampment on the grounds of the Old Ada County Courthouse.
Last month, U.S. District Judge Lynn Winmill ordered Occupy Boise protesters to move off the lawn within five days to give the state eight weeks to assess damage to the lawn and rehabilitate the grounds. The posting says that landscape maintenance "is not a legitimate end in itself."
The article, which does not have a byline, calls the new rules "only the latest in a series of moves to consolidate power, silence dissent, and deny Idaho citizens rights guaranteed by both the Idaho and United States Constitutions."
