Title "5th Annual Old Time American Flag Burn" Sparks a Reaction
 
Subtitle
 
Description For the 5th year running, the burning of American flags will take place on <strong>Friday, July 3rd</strong> at Seabright Beach in Santa Cruz. Organizers say they raise the burning flag up as a sacred symbol representing their highest ideals as Americans, and that the "American Flag is so great a symbol that it represents the right to burn it."
<br /><br />
<em>Robert Norse comments</em>, "Burning a flag in solidarity with the Honduran people on July 4th makes more sense to me than burning a flag as a celebration of the First Amendment. Divorcing flag-burning from its visceral ('Yanqui, go home!') content is a way of stripping the action of its force."
