This week we explore the ritual of Independence Day by presenting a Pacifica National program produced by Adi Gevins and Ginna Allison.
Entitled, �Star Spangled Independence�,
this program takes an irreverent survey of the the official symbols and personal rituals of American Patriotism. Originally aired in July 1995
In part 2, we present excerpts from the Civil Liberties Radio Education Project. This program looks at the outer boundaries of protections provided by the Bill of Rights and how our civil liberties are affected by these limitations.
