CSU Letter tothe Rector
Student president Sabine Friesinger may have been the first person to
defy the temporary ban on posters, but you could hardly quarrel with the
message she taped up for a crowd of reporters last Monday afternoon: "Stop
the killing in Israel and Palestine."
The Concordia Student Union (CSU) also plans to protest next Monday in
front of Bishop Court, the administration building, against a cooling-off
period imposed by the university in the wake of a disturbance on Sept.
9, when former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was prevented
from speaking in the Hall Building by protesters.
On Sept. 11, the CSU formally resolved to pay the legal costs of those
arrested in the brouhaha, which saw windows broken, ticket-holders for
the speech harassed, the building evacuated and the police challenged.
