Their student rag published this:
|The took my sex issue away!|
On Tuesday, Shitty Community College administrators, in a ruthless and authoritarian display of censorship, stripped students of some basic constitutional rights.
Tuesday’s issue of the weekly, student-run newspaper centered on sex. Staff members said their intention was to create a dialogue on the topic and educate students on safe practices. The administration didn’t see the value in this, and immediately suspended the staff and declared that it would halt publication until the summer.
The college pulled Tuesday’s issue off the shelves and staff members said college representatives even pried the issue out of students’ hands if they saw them reading it.
It goes without saying that this violates students’ rights to freedom of speech and of the press. [Our paper] enjoys complete editorial freedom, freedom that members of the University's Student Publications Board value and work hard to protect. I’ve decided that we at the [Our Paper] have a responsibility to use that freedom to make a statement in solidarity with the [Shitty Community College] staff. In that light, [Our Paper] will not publish any more printed issues of the newspaper until the Shitty Community College administration agrees to reinstate Shitty Community College staff members to their former positions at the paper and allow the newspaper to remain free of faculty, staff or administrative oversight.
It's not quite the SDS, but it's something.
