Eye On Olympia

Meanwhile, on the steps of the capitol…

The Olympian’s Adam Wilson reports that Tacoma truck driver Nick Bradford intends to burn the Mexican flag on the statehouse steps when the legislative session begins next month.

“Obviously the protest is intended to get the attention of the public, but also the politicians here, in Washington.”

he told Wilson.

We can’t always bark at the other Washington and George Bush. We can do things locally here.”

One minor issue remains:

He has not turned in a request for a permit to hold a rally on the steps, but said he plans to. The Department of General Administration, which issues such permits, says flag burning is protected free speech, but also a possible safety hazard, which would require a burn permit.
