Protecting the Flag
Is burning the Flag a desecration that should be punished? or the ultimate exercise of freedom of expression? In the United States a number of people believe that the constitution should be amended to allow the banning of flag burning.
The Congressional Research Service have produced a research paper on flag burning. It outlines the position the Courts have taken, and the attempts to ban this controversial activity.
