Compulsory Patriotism


United States v. Eichman was a 1990 Supreme Court case that struck down a federal law against desecrating the US flag. The case concerned two groups, one in Washington DC and one Seattle, who burned flags to protest the newly-passed law. The court found for the protesters and the charges of desecrating the flag were dismissed. However, the Seattle defendants were still in trouble for stealing the flag they burned from the now-demolished Capitol Hill Post Office. En Plein Air Coffee Club will meet at 8am on Friday 17th June 2016 in Cal Anderson Park, near the former post office. Here’s a map.
