Free Speech in Pittsburgh isn't as free as many of us might take it to be. At the Three Rivers Regatta, Ken Miller was arrested for distributing anti-sweatshop materials, and Celeste Taylor was told by the police that her group could not register people to vote at the Regatta. The Regatta took place at Point State Park, yet police referred to it as "private property."

Hear their stories in their own words. This interview was taken July 7th at the City Courthouse, after Ken's preliminary hearing.

Can you post in a more primitive format for downloading? My system is having problems recognizing the format.
