Activist groups are frustrated with the City of Charlotte for providing too little information about protest opportunities Uptown during the Democratic National Convention. City officials say groups need to be patient.
The County now says Uptown parks will not be an option for large groups. Political conventions - Democratic and Republican - always draw protesters. The City of Charlotte has put all protest and special event permits on hold for the Uptown area while it prepares an application process for marches and rallies during the DNC.
