Banning Protest at Santa Cruz

Once again, a university is banning a counterrecruitment protest--an error made even worse by banning an entire career fair. And then the administration has the audacity to blame the protestors for it all. If there is a danger from trying to keep students out of a career fair, then the simple solution is to let the students in, and let them protest. If the protest exceeds the rules, then individual protestors can be punished or even arrested. But to preemptively ban an entire event because of the threat of a protest is both ridiculous and repressive.
