CLEVELAND– The city of Cleveland and the Cleveland Division of Police released the finalized list of protest groups on Wednesday for the Republican National Convention.
The list includes a detailed schedule for the protest parades, public art displays and the speakers platform on Public Square. The deadline was Friday and there are no other pending applications. All time slots for the official speakers platform are filled, the city said.
The America First Movement anticipates 5,000 will participate in its parade on July 18. Stand Together Against Trump was approved for 5,000 participants of its own for its parades on July 19 and July 21.
These so-called parades will travel the Hope Memorial Bridge into downtown Cleveland. That means most of Carnegie Avenue is closed during the RNC.
Five members from the controversial Westboro Baptist Church are permitted to demonstrate at Perk Plaza on July 20.
