The local police are acting on orders of BayWalk businesses according to the St. Petersburg Times. St. Petersburg is also considering establishing unconstitutional No-Protest Zones. Its time to launch a boycott of the trendy BayWalk chains that are having handcuffs placed on peaceful St. Pete for Peace anti-war protestors exercising their first amendment rights. BayWalk gets 3 million visitors a year -- boycotting it and the chains there will cut into the revenues of BayWalk, the City of St. Petersburg, and the chains that operate there. Here's a list of the BayWalk business chains: Muvico theaters, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, Johnny Rockets, Ann Taylor, Sunglass Hut, Chico's, Adobo Grill, Dan Marino's Restaurant, Jess Jewelers, Lola Jane's Beauty Lounge, Metropolitan Outfitters, Bag n Baggage, Hurricane Pass Outfitters, Wet Willie's Daiquiri Bar, Happy Feet, Too Jay's Gourmet Deli, Tokyo Sushi Cafe, White House/Black Market, EB Games, Icing by Claire's, and Art of Being. It is also important to note that BayWalk is managed by Sembler Co., the firm owned by George W. Bush's ambassador to Italy and major Bush family campaign contributor Mel Sembler. Sembler is an arch-neocon who has been named by Italian intelligence sources as a key player in the laundering of the bogus Niger yellowcake uranium documents, the activities of Pentagon paramilitary operations in Italy, and the DSSA neo-Fascist private intelligence network linked to Israel's Likud that is currently being rolled up by Italian judicial authorities. Sembler maintains a close relationship with his BayWalk property -- his wife Betty celebrated her 70th birthday at BayWalk's Gratzzi's Restaurant. It is likely that Sembler is attempting to use BayWalk as a personal weapon against anti-Iraq War protestors.

If St. Petersburg does enact No-Protest Zones, tourists and conventioneers should take their business elsewhere -- to cities that proclaim themselves "Constitution Protection Zones."
