Oct. 10th, 2006 @ 10:25 pm Anti-racism is attacked at Colombia U
This is so infuriating! The following was from an email I got. Basically the short hand is this. The College Republicans at Colombia brought a speaker from the ultra-racist and violent Minutemen to campus, and anti-racist activists went on-stage with a banner to protest, garnering lots of others to applaud and join them. This was met with violence and now the anti-racist activists might be prosecuted! The ridiculousness is astounding.

Apparently the First Amendment only applies when you're being paid thousands and put behind a podium. Otherwise, keep it outside. And I'm so tired of people masking the advocation (is that a word?) of racist violence as free speech!

Sing the petition below!

so this has all sort of blown up at colombia with the university talking about taking action against the anti-racist protesters. its been on fox news and in a lot of national press. the way this gets handled by the authorities might set the tone for how other resistance to the minutemen is dealt with.
