Protest to support the  Irvine 11 at OC Superior Court on May 26

WHAT: Members and  supporters of the Orange County Peace Coalition will be
wearing gags tomorrow  at 8:00 a.m. in front of the Orange County Superior
Court to show their  support for the Irvine 11 who are appearing before a
judge at 9:00 a.m.  Justice wears a blindfold and holds a scale to symbolize
that race, religious  creed and political affiliation shall not influence or
color the judicial  process. UCI Administrators have failed to grant
student's their  Constitutional rights to free speech.  Freedom of speech, protest
and  assembly are a fiction when the cost of exercising these fundamental
rights is  expulsion and the derailing of an education leading to a career as a
 productive member of society.

The Orange County Peace Coalition  invites readers to join them tomorrow
morning in defense of the rights of free  speech and protest and the ideal
that all universities must remain a bastion  of the free exchange of ideas.

WHO: Orange County Peace  Coalition

WHEN: Thursday, May 26, 2011, 8:00 AM - 10 AM  

WHERE: Orange County Superior Court, 700 W. Civic Center Dr.,  Santa Ana, CA
