People’s Parliament vows to continue picketing exercise despite Housing Ministry’s action

Members of the People Parliament’s have vowed to continue their picketing exercise despite an early morning action by the Housing Ministry.

According to the protestors, the Ministry’s demolition crew came just before dawn and removed several placards, banners, billboards and other items.

Earlier the Ministry had placed a no-trespassing sign on the lot that was earmarked for tourism attraction. That was after the People’s Parliament was set up two months earlier.

Tyrone Talbot challenged the Minister to prove that the People’s Parliament is operating outside of the constitution.

City Mayor, Hamilton Greene, granted permission to the People’s Parliament, to place their placards on the pavement without obstructing pedestrians.

Troy Kellman said, that the Mayor’s orders were being ignored.

The People’s Parliament collected over 6000 signed petitions from citizens, that were given to the speaker of the National Assembly.
