Ayers, Jensen to speak for Churchill in Boulder

As Snaps points out in comments somewhere, soft-voiced terrorist Billy Ayers and eco-Luddite Derrick Jensen will be appearing for Ward a few days before the start of the trial of his suit against CU:

Students for TRUE Academic Freedom is hosting an event in conjunction with Ward Churchill’s landmark academic freedom lawsuit against the University of Colorado. Churchill’s legal suit for violating his first amendment rights begins March 9th. Therefore, we are bringing well known activist-scholars Derrick Jensen and Bill Ayers to voice their strong support for Churchill and political dissent in academia. Their presentations will unveil the mask of liberal academia and link Churchill’s fight with other scholars who have been attacked for their strong beliefs. If we want our universities to embody institutions of critical inquiry, then we must not only support scholars such as Ward Churchill, but also view these attacks in context. Come and hear the shocking truths behind the right-wing attacks on Churchill. Hear what they don’t want you to know!
