The story is outlined well here with links to more about it. Basically the administration at my school, RPI, got pressure from the College Republican Club to shut down a controversial art show. Then the art show moved to an independent space http://www.mediasanctuary.org/ off campus. It got protested by a group of city employees for being “un-American” and then the entire media space got shut down for “code violations.” We are working on getting the space re-opened and exposing the un-democractic nature of all of the actions. I will send out a more info soon.
