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 ###

March 19 International Day of Action
STOP THE WARS, FUND PEOPLE’S NEEDS
While the U.S. government will spend $1 trillion for war, occupation and weapons in 2011, 30 million people in the United States remain unemployed or severely underemployed, and cuts in education, housing and healthcare are imposing a huge toll on the people in California and across the country. Saturday, March 19, the anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, will be a national day of action against the war machine.
