In an attempt to squelch controversy, school administrators have elected to employ a seldom-used mechanism to suppress alternate views, requiring attendees to display their “papers”, or university IDs -- so much for oft-proclaimed integration of the University with the community at large.
Anti-torture advocates will challenge this pretext for exclusion by testing policing at event doors, expressing solidarity with actual torture victims by wearing the prison garb of Guantanamo.
Meetup 12:30 pm outside Room 110, Boalt Hall, UC Berkeley campus on Thursday September 9. Demonstrate your right to speak out against school administration promotion of state torture policies.
