FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY.
"In this Decision, the Court goes even one step further in safeguarding liberty by giving local governments a deadline of 30 days within which to designate specific freedom parks as provided under B.P. No. 880. IF, AFTER THAT PERIOD, NO SUCH PARKS ARE SO IDENTIFIED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 15 OF THE LAW, ALL PUBLIC PARKS AND PLAZAS OF THE MUNICIPALITY OR CITY CONCERNED SHALL IN EFFECT BE DEEMED FREEDOM PARKS; NO PRIOR PERMITS OF WHATEVER KIND SHALL BE REQUIRED TO HOLD AN ASSEMBLY THEREON. The only requirement will be WRITTEN NOTICES TO THE POLICE AND THE MAYOR'S OFFICE to allow proper coordination and orderly activities."
