Can you ever like your mental illness? – Free Speech – BBC Three – Video

The University of California, Berkeley, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movementthis fall, but some students arent happy having an outspoken free-speech advocate on campus. Following news Tuesday that Bill Maher has been tapped to deliver the keynote address at UC Berkeleys graduation in December, critics of the liberal, antireligious rabble-rouser launched a petition this week demanding that the school reconsider.

Bill Maher is a blatant bigot and racist who has no respect for the values UC Berkeley students and administration stand for, wrote the petitioner, identified on Change.org as Khwaja Ahmed of Irvine. In a time where climate is a priority for all on campus, we cannot invite an individual who himself perpetuates a dangerous learning environment.

The petition follows a much-debated segment on HBOs Real Time With Bill Maher, in which the host sparred with Gone Girl actor Ben Affleck over radical Islam, arguing that fundamentalist views are commonly held in Muslim communities, not the exception as Affleck asserted.

Maher, an avowed atheist, made the 2008 movie “Religulous” and often criticizes organized religion on the late-night program, but this segment went particularly viral, attracting more than 1.2 million views on YouTube, and dominating cable news panels earlier this month. In the clip, Maher said liberals should stand up for principles like free speech, but not everyone bought his argument.

As of Friday morning, the petition on Change.org has attracted more than 700 signatures, with many commenters identifying themselves as current and former students of Berkeley and other UC schools. As an alumni I cant let the future generation of Cal Bears be tainted by false information, ignorance, and racist views, one person wrote.

A press rep for Berkeley did not immediately respond to a request to comment. The schools official newspaper, the Daily Californian, announced Tuesday that Maher will speak at the schools graduation ceremony on Dec. 20.

The campus is the site of the Free Speech Movement, a historic student protest that began in 1964. On the 50th anniversary of that event, some free-speech advocates have been calling on the school to further loosen policies that regulate campus speech.

Bill Maher At UC Berkeley? No Way Say Some Students Following Radical Islam Debate

On October 1, Free Speech day in California, former National Security Agency subcontractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden sent the following message to veterans of Berkeley’s Free Speech Movement. It was read aloud on the Savio Steps by FSM vet Jack Radey during a rally marking the 50th anniversary of the day students surrounded a police car to prevent the arrest of a political activist who had been tabling for the Congress of Racial Equality.

Thank you for inviting me to speak to you today, as we recognize the 50th Anniversary of the Free Speech Movement.

Berkeley’s unparalleled traditions of student activism and community engagement have been both a challenge and in inspiration to human rights movements worldwide. They compel us to imagine the world that we want to live in and to stand up for itand they show us that with vision and persistence, we can change the world. I am honored to join with you today to celebrate that tradition.

The threats to free expression in the United States and around the world today are vast and complex. In order to better understand and combat these new threats, we must look back on the great victories of the Free Speech Movement and its part in the people’s movements that created checks on government power at that time.

Many of these checks, unfortunately, have now been almost completely eroded. The extraordinary mass surveillance and censorship capabilities and unprecedented government secrecy require us, once again, to take urgent action to preserve our free societies.

This is the challenge of our generation.

While new technologies have introduced extraordinary opportunities for free expression and communication around the globe, governments have, in secret, worked against these forces to reengineer these new capabilities as tools of mass surveillance and oppression.

Surveillance, without regard to the rule of law or our basic human dignity, creates societies that fear free expression and dissent, the very values that have made America strong. When we know we’re being watched, we impose restraints on our behavioreven clearly innocent activitiesjust as surely as if we were ordered to do so.

On this campus in 1964, Mario Savio said, “There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part.” Over the past fifteen months, people around the world have spoken out and continue to stand up against the forces of censorship and surveillance. Together, we will restore the public’s seat at the table of government.

Exclusive to The Planet: Edward Snowden's Message to Berkeley On the 50th Anniversary of the Free Speech Movement

LOGAN, Utah Should Utah College campuses be gun free zones? Thats what some educators are demanding after a high-profile feminist canceled her speech at Utah State University because of violent threats made against her.

Hundreds of USU faculty members co-signed a letter asking the President of Utah State University to keep guns off campus. President Stan Albrecht said the university has to follow state law, and state law is that anyone with a permit can carry a concealed weapon on college campuses.

I got an email, a university email, and it is from one of my colleagues, and it is a request to sign the letter, and in that email it was explained why campus needs to be gun free, says Taira Koybaeva, a Professor of Global Communication at USU about the letter sent to USU President Albrecht.

It says in part, The cancellation of her talk [referring to Anita Sarkeesian, a feminist who is vocal about women's sexualization in the gaming industry] provides a clear example of how free speech is threatened because we dont have a gun free campus.

It goes on to say, We urge you to take this opportunity to make our campus gun free, assuring our words remain free.

About 200 faculty members co-signed the letter. Koybaeva did not.

I chose not to sign, she said. A lot of my colleagues did. I opposed.

President Albrecht wrote back to the faculty letter, saying in part, Whatever our personal feelings and preferences, as a campus we are obligated to follow state statute.

Tim Vitale, Director of Public Relations and Marketing at USU, said a meeting followed the exchange of letters.

After sending the response to faculty members, they contacted each other and decided to sit down for a face to face meeting, the president met with faculty members, Vitale said.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 20, 2014

Edwin J. Goitia of Aurora has joined the popular pro bono speakers bureau, Free Speech. He will be donating his time to the more than 1,000 Chicagoland clubs, business groups and organizations that use Free Speech.

My mission is to help folks represent their favorite brands, get out of debt, enjoy life, travel and meet amazing people all over the globe, Goitia said.

His Free Speech topics are:

Experiential Marketing What do you do when your marketing tactics are not getting straight to the consumer? Edwin tells how you can bring your ideas, services or business straight to consumers and create something unforgettable. Hell also discuss how experiential marketing has played a role in todays economy and how anyone can utilize it today.

Travel Hacking – Often travel is seen as a luxury and an expensive hobby, but there is a way to access the world with less money or resources – travel hacking. Edwin dives into this incredibly hot and trending hobby that has picked up the pace globally with people of all ages and backgrounds.

I found my passion for travel hacking through the work of experiential marketing, he said. I realized that many folks did not have the knowledge or the resources necessary to thrive in travel. I want to change this for everyone. I find cheap or free ways to fly around the world, stay in hotels, and take on adventure and excursions.

A former restaurant manager, Goitia is self employed and has a successful six-figure business in event and experiential marketing. In 2010, he started a second online community that has grown to more than 10,000 event professionals worldwide. The community provides free resources, training and other valuable resources to assist event marketers everywhere, from the novice to advanced level folks.

Many have benefited and succeeded using the free knowledge I have shared, he said. This is my way of giving back. Public speaking will amplify my voice and contribute further to the mission of educating others on this amazing industry.

More than 200 speakers comprise Free Speech which is a Chicago area speakers bureau that matches dynamic speakers from the world of business, healthcare, or the arts with local groups program needs for the upcoming year, all for free. All speakers present at no cost as community service. Requesting a speaker from Free Speech is free also.
