CLEVELAND - The FOX 8 I TEAM now has the list of groups requesting permits from Cleveland City Hall to march or hold large gatherings during this summer's Republican National Convention.
So far, the city has received 5 requests for permits.
A man from Peoria, Illinois filed a permit application listing his organization name as "Trump March RNC". In an e-mail to city hall, he wrote of plans for "a march and demonstration" in support of Donald Trump each day from July 18-20. Up to 500 people are expected to march from Willard Park to the Q.
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation based in California would like to gather at CSU and parade through downtown. That permit application lists 1,000 walking participants.
A man from Texas filed a parade application for two days during convention week. The application predicts "5000+" walking participants and 104 vehicles.
Meantime, a group called Global Zero from Washington, DC wants to hold a "First Amendment demonstration".
Finally, a group called Organize Ohio has requested a permit for an event including "1000-5000 walking participants."
Of course, police and other law enforcement agencies are expecting other groups to gather even without a permit and are preparing for that as well.
