Lemonade Vendors Stand Up to Cops, and Win!

Lemonade Freedom Day is a civil disobedience event held every year, in protest of government agents threatening children for running lemonade stands. This year, activists set up a lemonade stand in Philadelphia, PA. They applied for no permits, they paid no taxes, they just set up a lemonade stand and conducted voluntary trade with passers by.

Police didn’t appreciate that much, and came to try and stop us. But we’re not so easily stopped.
