The Field Operation Bureau has denied a (parade) permit to The World Can’t Wait national protest scheduled for November 2nd. The permit was denied on the basis that it will disrupt traffic especially on a weekday because the march will at one point proceed down Market St. Organizers are now fighting for the opportunity to file for an appeal to the County Board of Supervisors to overturn the police department’s decision.

The police department has been stalling and changing appointment times every 15 minutes today denying organizers an appointment to obtain the necessary paper work to file for an appeal in order to bring it to the Board of Supervisors. Two members of the Board of Supervisors have already signed the World Can't Wait call, Tom Ammiano and Chris Daly.

There are a number of reasons for choosing Market Street to protest. The first reason is that this was the street that people gathered on the first day the Iraq War started. Second Many other symbolic protests have occurred on this street. Third, that this protest corresponds to the national protest. Finally, this protest is meant to halt business as usual, to get people to leave work and school, and bring attention on to those who are doing the same. The protest has confirmed over 30 cities participating in this event.

World Can't Wait has called for a convergence rally at the Civic Center at noon and march, the rally will also end at the Civic Center at 4:30 p.m.
