Assemblies on Private and Public Property
Most demonstrations or assemblies take place in public to reach the public. They are held to protest something and often involve conflict and differing opinions which leads to heightened tensions that could affect bystanders and the area around them. In response to this possibility, the Supreme Court submitted a law that requires permits and notices for public demonstrations. These Right- to- demonstrate laws often lead to controversies about when the police should step in and how much regulation is appropriate.
Freedom of Association
Both the Right to Assemble and the Right to Petition include a Right of Association: which is the right to join with others to promote political, economic, and social causes. Although this right isn't necessarily outlined in the Constitution, in 1958 court case NAACP v. Alabama, Court ruled that the freedom to associate is apart of the Constitution's guarantee of free expression. A person can not be fired for political associations or required to disclose associations to be licensed to practice law. Despite all this, there is no absolute right of association.
