MORE CRUSHING OF DISSENT:
New London, CT (February 21, 2004) – A rally by College Republicans from Connecticut College in New London, CT was broken up Friday night by Campus Safety officers, who told them they had no permit. The students were rallying peacefully in front of the Olin Science Center, near the main entrance to the school. The students were showing their support for President Bush, and encouraging others to be excited about and supportive of the President.
“No one has ever needed a permit before,” said Bob French, a junior from New Hampshire and the Executive Director of the state-level College Republicans.
