New York City is canceling street fairs, outdoor concerts, parades and other big events through September because of coronavirus as local officials try to keep city blocks open for restaurants and the public.

Large outdoor gatherings have been officially banned in New York since the spring, though thousands have taken to city streets to protest against police brutality. Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, said Thursday that the city’s ban will exempt “demonstrations, religious events and press conferences.”

Technically, protests fall under the 1st Amendment. As stated, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The keyword being peaceful, which as we've seen, so many people forget that part.
