UCLA fights BDS

From a reader from UCLA: ""Milan Chatterjee, having presided over the drafting of a 'neutrality clause' that prescribes the UCLA Graduate Student Association's stance on Israel/Palestine issues, did not wait until the GSA had voted on such a clause, before communicating to the organizer of a diversity event that GSA funding was contingent on the event's exclusion of BDS activity. This episode is indicative of the insidiousness and duplicity practiced by those who abuse their positions of power to stifle or deny graduate students in a public university their first amendment right to free expression.""
