Stop Motion: First Amendment "The Freedom to Assemble"

Ashley Connelly's insight:

The first amendment simulation explains how the right to assemble can be used in a situation in the Unites States.  Since assemble means to put together , that is how an image for a peaceful protest begins.Next the begging of the assembly marches across a place to make a point, about the protest.  As for authorities who try to ruin the protest as long as the protestors remain peaceful,  they have the right to keep moving on to the right to assemble.  Right to assemble protects the rights of the people from being  persuecuted for standing up for  what you believe in.

ABC-CLIO SCHOOLS

Ashley Connelly's insight:

Freedom to asseemble is in the frst amendmnet. It protects the right of the people to parade, gather, and protest for lawfully means. " Rights of the people peacfully to assemble " is valued in a democratic and republican government.  People may have the right to assemble for a lawful meaing but they still have to respect the government. No one is allowed to go against the government violently.  For example, no obstrucation of traffic or idiling jails because it threatens the law. Many times has the right to assemble have been used in the past years. As an example ,  people have assebmled against abortion.  Without the freedom to assemble the people woulcnt have the voice to their concerns without theier actions. Actions do truely tell everything.

Freedom of Assembly

Ashley Connelly's insight:

As long as the people remain  non-violenlty  the right to assemble can be used for many purposes.  The right to peacefully assemble is intended to protect the poeple in public places, and sometimes exceptionally private property. Having the right to gather is a very important freedom. Imagine the civil rights movement without the freedom to assemble. In history their would never be any rights for African Americans if it werent for the right to assemble. The Klu Klux Klan favorably used the right to assemble various times.  They used all sidewalks and streets to support their protest. Overall,  the right to assemble remains the same as long no danger is to occur.
