Antiwar Illinois High Schoolers To Be Expelled?
[UPDATE: The Chicago Sun-Times has a good story on new developments.]
Arthur Silber has an appalling post about high schoolers in Berwyn, Illinois who may be expelled for holding a peaceful anti-war protest. Arthur grabbed the details from Chicago Indymedia, but it's also covered in detail by a local paper. An online petition opposing the expulsions is here, now with over 1,500 signatories.Posted at November 6, 2007 12:13 PM | TrackBack
