‘Free Speech Area’ planned in Bohemia Park

Every Sunday starting June 5, the public is invited to visit the southeast corner of Bohemia Park in Cottage Grove to participate in a free speech activity modeled on the world-famous “Speaker’s Corner” in Hyde Park, London.

All are welcome speak on any subject, using only the power of their vocal chords (no microphones or bull horns). Speakers may bring their own platforms such as a box or a stepladder to be better heard. Attendees are encouraged to comment, argue, debate or otherwise confer with the speaker.

As a general rule, engagement is welcomed, but unruly behavior is not.

The weekly event is planned to run 10 a.m. to dusk each Sunday through the summer.
