Thread Name: Pete Seeger Evening on BBC Radio 2
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger Evening on BBC Radio 2
I found it puzzling that when Pete Seeger responded to the Un-American Activities committee under the terms of the First Amendment to the Constitution which, from what I can gather, guarantees the right to freedom of association etc., he was still found guilty of "contempt of court". Perhaps one of our American friends can explain the judges decision.
