Re: Freedom of speech for Bush visit?, Flash news, March 1, 2005
No less an authority than the US Supreme Court has ruled that flag burning is protected as freedom of speech.
It was definitely the Slovak police, which held the flag burners [two Czech protesters were subsequently banned from entering Slovakia for ten years] for 13 hours and dumped them over the border at 3:30 in the morning.
Mind you, having seen the tiny flags being burned on TV news I think it has to rate as one of the most pathetic protests that I have ever seen in my life.
