Kansas State Fair and PETA Clash Over Booth Restriction
08/16/2012

  HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - The group People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals is objecting to restrictions on its exhibit
next month at the Kansas State Fair, saying they amount to
unconstitutional censorship.
     Fair officials say any videos or pictures of animals being
decapitated, dismembered or butchered must not be readily visible
outside PETA's booth, so that fairgoers will have to make a
conscious choice to view the material.
     PETA calls that a content-based restraint. It says the fair is a
public forum and cannot restrict viewpoints.
     Fair general manager Denny Stoecklein responded Wednesday that
the fair "supports Kansas agriculture and sends a strong
pro-agriculture message."
     He added, "We also provide an equal opportunity to all
individuals and organizations to apply for booth space and respect
an individual or organization's First Amendment rights."
