On Friday of last week, someone projected a political message about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on the front of Portland City Hall without permission. Is this an example of freedom of speech?

City Councilor Pious Ali tweeted this image of the projected message which read "Roe v Wade is more popular than Brett Kavanaugh.

The Bangor Daily News reports that a spokesperson for the city says that Portland does not allow projections on city hall without permission, so this is illegal. Both Mayor Ethan Strimling and counselor Ali say that this act is protected by the First Amendment granting freedom of speech.

So what do you think? Is this freedom of speech? If so, does this mean that anyone can project any message they want on the building without permission? Share your thoughts in the comments below of on our Facebook page.
