ACLU Sues Ft. Lauderdale Over Demonstration Restrictions

The Organization of American States which is comprised of 34 western hemisphere countries that promote democracy, trade and human rights are the latest targets of the ACLU. But to get to them the ACLU has to get past the city of Ft. Lauderdale and Broward County who have imposed restrictions on demonstrators that the ACLU feels restricts their freedom of speech.

It is pretty sad that an organization like the ACLU is attempting to demonstrate against the OAS when human rights is one of that groups main focal points. How could the ACLU, who projects themselves as the leading authority in rights, find fault with another group who is dedicated to it too? Or, could it be the real bone of contention for the ACLU is because they weren't invited to participate? It appears more and more that the ACLU is really an "all about me" organization and isn't really interested in the betterment of mankind at all. Their agenda is becoming more apparent all the time.
