DRUM CIRCLE SHUT DOWN IN MALCOM X PARK SUNDAY!!!



FOR MANY "TRUE" DC RESIDENTS AND THOSE WHO INDULGE IN THE CULTURE ON SUNDAY EVENINGS AT MALCOLM X PARK, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED TO FIND THAT NEXT SUNDAY THERE WILL BE NO DRUM CIRCLE. WHY? BECAUSE THE SO CALLED "PERMIT" HAS EXPIRED. THIS PAST SUNDAY, A BIKE OFFICER STROLLED INTO THE PARK AND SHUT THE CIRCLE DOWN. MIND YOU, DRUMMING HAS GONE ON IN THE PARK FOR OVER 30 YEARS. HE SAID THAT THE PERMIT HOLDERS HAD AN EXPIRED PERMIT FOR GATHERING AND PLAYING DRUMS IN THE PARK. I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT HE SAID THE NEIGHBORS WERE COMPLAINING ABOUT TO MUCH NOISE. WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

Is there anything that we can do to ensure that the Drum Circle will not be shut down in the future? Do you folks need help applying/fundraising for a permit?
