Preserving Campus Political Speech

Preserving Campus Political Speech

By Columbia Students for Nader

Thanks largely to the support of readers like yourself, Columbia Students for Nader is pleased to report that the Columbia Political Union (CPU) today reversed its decision to exclude a representative of Students for Nader at its upcoming campus debate among the presidential campaigns. The organization announced its decision after fulminating about how Students for Nader publicized the CPU’s original decision and encouraged protest e-mails.

There is a lesson for us to learn from this incident—namely, not to remain complacent in the face of monopolization of thought by the machines that control the country and the terms of its mainstream political debate. Challenges do not always end in victory, but to capitulate without trying is unacceptable.
