Due to some overexaggerated reports of quote on quote "reckless behaviour", Police in the state parks within the "Battery" area of Manhattan are now enforcing a "No Parkour/Freerunning" rule, punishable by a 300$ fine. The Ban is affecting many tracuers (and traceuse) as spots to practice downtown, are becoming difficult to find. Practitioners have been training here, and all over the city, for nearly a decade now, and have had virtually zero reports of vandalism, property damage, or anti-social behavior. Putting a ban on something as harmless and benefitial as parkour is both unfair, and borederline unconstitutional, as these practitioners (quite successfully) make it a point to disturb no one, and preserve and respect the surroundings they train on and in via their "Leave No Trace" philosophy. We aren't hurting anyone or anything, and we should be allowed to continue doing so freely. By signing this petition, you are helping to support the eventual removal of the ban on PK, and the restoration of a free New York Thank you for your support -EXI PK FACTION
