Williamsport, Pa — Local activist, Gene Stilp, held a protest outside the Williamsport court house. The flag burning was intended to be a direct protest of the Neo-Nazi rally which took place in Williamsport over the weekend. Prior to the event, Stilp contacted the Lycoming County Commissioners to request a permit for the flag burning protest. The request was denied. Stilp, dressed in a suit jacket and jeans, appeared in front of the court house around 11:45 a.m. He brought a lighter, a fire-safe trash can, and three flags. Each flag represented a different critique of the current administration, which he explained prior to the attempted burning.
