ILLINOIZE: FIRE prez discusses DePaul free speech violations on Hannity & Colmes

DePaul says they'll lift their ban on propaganda!

ILLINOIZE: FIRE prez discusses DePaul free speech violations on Hannity & Colmes"Under pressure from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE),DePaul University has lifted a vague ban on “propaganda” that it used last fall to silence student protest of a campus appearance by controversial University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill.

“The revocation of the ‘propaganda’ ban is a step in the right direction for DePaul,” said FIRE Interim President Greg Lukianoff. “Yet DePaul’s disregard for freedom of expression reaches far beyond this one policy. The true test will be how DePaul reacts the next time students attempt to express dissenting opinions.”"
