This chapter contains an exchange of letters between the American Civil Liberties Union's director, Roger Baldwin, and the Workers' (Communist) Party's acting director, Earl Browder, on matters of free speech. It begins with the minutes of a Communist Party meeting that aims to initiate a campaign against Raphael Abramovich, a leader of the Bund and the Russian Social Democratic Party, who was then on a speaking tour in the United States. The Communist Party opposed Abramovich's cause and was determined to disrupt his speaking engagements. Placing the exchange between Baldwin and Browder in this context, the chapter shows how both sides argue on rights to protest and free speech.
