 Free speech ( Or Lack Of as this was a totally silent protest. One thing did cross my mind as most gals ( and one guy ) here were mostly likely protesters during the Vietnam War well. No one under  50  was protesting. I think maybe protesting is a thinkg  Linked  to  That  generation. ( Same age group that started protesting  the Vietnam war, moved on to protesting to keep abortion, no nukes, Save The Whales, Save The Spotted Owl, Save The Trees, Save The Whales. Looking into the future, I think this generation from say 50 to early 60's will be known as the  Great Protesters .... ( No thing wrong or course with expressing your believes, it's just that the younger folks for the most part don't )  ...    PS,, I am not judging here,,promise,, just an observation,,,
