The Constitutional right to silence

Concerning the venue of the antiwar protest in New York:
"They agreed with us that the West Side Highway would be a perfect place," Mr. Bloomberg said. "There's a nice breeze off the water, you can set up sound systems there, nobody is going to really be bothered, they'll be able to express themselves without taking away anybody else's rights." Those rights, Mr. Bloomberg has said numerous times, included silence. [emphasis added]
