Culture Defense Poject- NYC- Protest
Saturday, June 7 2003
Foley Square in Lower Manhattan
protesting the ridiculous RAVE Act and the NYC Cabaret Law.
please support this. postponed from last week due to rain.
This country is getting more and more evil by the minute, and it is
now directly affecting you (“you” being people who enjoy going
out to hear electronic music in nyc). it’s still illegal to dance in
most venues in nyc, and the police enforce this law very selectivly
to ruin venues they have beef with. the RAVE act is even worse,
holding promoters of entertainment events responsible if anyone
at the event is caught with illegal drugs. imo, both of these laws
are very wrong, and it’s going to take the support of our entire
community (and beyond) to do anything about it.

The RAVE Act (now called the Illicit Drugs Anti-Proliferaton Act) was
signed into law April 30th, 2003. It was attached to the AMBER Alert Act, a
bill concerning child abduction that has nothing to do with music or
entertainment whatsoever. The RAVE Act gives federal and local law
enforcement unprecendented power to shut down musical events and to
prosecute the organizers.
The NYC cabaret law has been on the books since 1926. It bans dancing
without a special permit in the city. Since Giuliani and now under
Bloomberg, hundreds of clubs, bars, and parties have been fined or
padlocked because of this law. There are less than 300 venues with a
cabaret license in a city of 8 million people.
Join us in Foley Square to speak out against the war against music culture!
If we don’t defend our music and our rights, who will?
