26. In Michigan
this past summer we set up on the parkway strip between parking lots and the road. State law allows us to be on any public property. The state police were called three times and local police twice. When they would come out to tell us we could not be there and we had to move we informed them of the facts and also told them that they should call the state police because if they called the local police, they would be told to call the state police.

When the state police came they parked and watched. After about 10 minutes they left. Make sure you are following the law and be polite to everyone while remaining firm about you right to be there. We never asked anyone for their signature. We put up signs and the people came to us. We did not impede traffic or argue with anyone. We had a blast. Too bad we did not get enough signatures, this time.

Best wishes!
