Silencing Fahrenheit 9-11: CNU Democrats Public Presentation Squelched

College Democrats at Christopher Newport University are facing attacks from not only their peers but a rigid administration with a right wing agenda. On Sunday the Hampton Roads Daily Press reported:

Kerry/Edwards buttons ripped off bookbags, torn from windows and vandalized, protests during a voter-registration drive, curses from fellow students.

These are few of the things the Young Democrats at Christopher Newport University say have happened to their members since the start of the school year.

College students are losing their right to express their opinions on this conservative leaning campus. The response by the administration at CNU? They are throwing roadblocks up to prevent the student Democrats from publicly presenting Fahrenheit 9-11 this week.

The administration led by former Republican Senator Paul Tribble stunned the college Democratic leadership with demands that they pay $500 in licensing fees to display the film. With just 3 days remaining until the scheduled Fahrenheit 9-11 screening the college organization is scrambling to raise money.

Free speech needs your help today. The College Democrats at CNU need your help. We can not stand by and let this attempt to squash academic discussion prevail. Will you donate $5, $10, or $20 to help the CNU Democrats keep up the fight on campus? Want to know how else you can help out the CNU Democrats?
