ACLU Warns Against UMich Censorship Policy over Palestinian Rights Activism

HeadlineApr 09, 2024

The University of Michigan has come under fire over its proposed “Disruptive Activity Policy,” which was issued by University President Santa Ono after Palestinian rights activists interrupted a speech he was giving. The ACLU of Michigan warns the policy will have a chilling effect and likely lead to violations of the First Amendment.

Elsewhere, Vanderbilt University in Tennessee has expelled, suspended and issued disciplinary probations to a group of students who engaged in a sit-in protest demanding Vanderbilt divest from companies complicit in Israel’s occupation and killing of Palestinians.
