DEMOCRACY AND REGULATION was awarded the ACLU’s Upton Sinclair Freedom of Expression Award (the “Uppie”) on Saturday, May 15, 2004, in Los Angeles. The Award was given to celebrate the 81st anniversary of Upton Sinclair's 1923 arrest at Liberty Hill for reading the First Amendment to the US Constitution to Marine Transport Workers (IWW) strikers. Sinclair’s speech and arrest led to the founding of the ACLU of Southern California. The Award is co-sponsored by The Harry Bridges Institute; The International Longshore and Warehouse Union, AFL-CIO (ILWU); Amalgamated Bank; Random Lengths News; The Living Newspaper Theatre; The Center for the Theatre of the Oppressed; and the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
