Irvine 11, Agree or Disagree?


Today the students who disrupted the on-campus speech of Israel’s ambassador, Michael Oren were found guilty. They won’t serve any time but will have records and receive probation.

I disagree with a guilty verdict and believe that when we stifle the voices of students we lessen the value of free speech. Such protest has pushed this country forward and forced it to look at social ugliness. I fervently disagree with suspending the Muslim Students Union for a quarter. Punishment seems to be levied dependent upon who is speaking.
