Product Description
Background:
Throughout history there have been many forms of protests and many cases involving expressive conduct, and what is for many a deeply cherished symbol of America- the US flag, and or the National Anthem.
Protests against the flag and during the playing of the US national anthem have had many causes, including civil rights, anti-conscription and anti-war, anti-nationalism, and religious reservations.
