It's my understanding that SFSU has suspended approval for all public
demonstrations until after the end of Spring 2009 after a Federal
Circuit (?) Court Judge struck down CSU's speech policy.

I doubt they'll razz our community, but it even makes the other
activity they have more discriminatory if they don't.

I was actually really looking at SFSU as a place to continue my
education, but have not been impressed by their Administration and Law
Enforcement officers showing up in news and activist alerts in the
past year.

Really a shame because I spent a *crap ton* of money to move to this
fantastic place full of nobel laureates where civil and student rights
movements have a lot of history, and I find that the overgrowth has
taken over.
