My question involves civil rights in the State of: Martinsburg, West Virginia
Recently, a local group of citzen's in my area were considering protesting the appointment of a New Library director.
They were told by the Martinsburg City Council Recorder that they could not protest on the sidewalk, because it was owned and maintained by the library. Presumably they are claiming that as private property.
It is my understanding that as long as we were not blocking sidewalk access and being polite and orderly that the sidewalk is "in public" and fair game?
