HONOLULU (AP) - A group planning to protest during the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting says the permit it's been granted is for a location that's too far from the Hawaii Convention Center.

World Can't Wait Hawaii has been granted a permit to demonstrate along a pedestrian mall, but not along the section directly behind the convention center.

City spokeswoman Lou-ise Kim McCoy said the location the group requested has already been assigned to federal law enforcement.

The group's leaders say they want to protest in an area that's seen by those attending the conference. The group is scheduled to meet with city officials today.

World Can't Wait Hawaii is among the groups expected to protest the policies of APEC when the summit arrives in Honolulu next month.
