In the comments section on stories about the proposed ordinances, Charlotte residents have also expressed concern for the new rules.
“These DNC ordinances affect not only Occupy Charlotte but also our whole community and anyone from anywhere in the world who wants to demonstrate at the DNC,” said ScottieW. “No masks = no scarves covering your faces when it's cold.”
Charlotte City Council will vote on the rules Jan. 23. If passed, they will go into effect immediately.
