Arizona State University: Stop CENSORING Change.org

    2. Petition by

      Eric Haywood

      Tempe, AZ

On November 30, 2011, I ( on behalf of a group of ASU students) started the petition titled "Arizona State University: Reduce The Costs Of Education For Arizona State University Students."

http://www.change.org/petitions/arizona-state-board-of-regents-reduce-the-costs-of-education-for-arizona-state-university-students

This petition requested signatures to support the reduction in the costs of education for ASU students.

And NOW, Arizona State University is BLOCKING ALL ACCESS to Change.org for ALL of it's over 70,000 students and over 5,000 faculty and employees.

As such, students living on ASU campus, using ASU computers or accessing the internet through ASU's school WIFI are not able to access Change.org.

As a result, Not only can't ASU students sign the above petition but they are unable to sign ANY PETITION on the Change.org website.

Not only is this outrageous, but it is a violation of the 1st Amendment rights of both ASU students as well the rights of Change.org and those with petitions hosted by Change.org to freely express themselves.

Last time I checked this was America, not China, or Iran, or North Korea.....

Support Arizona State University Students.

Support Freedom Of Expression.

Support The 99%.

Sign The Petition.

      Arizona State University: Stop BLOCKING ACCESS To Change.org.

      On November 30, 2011, I ( on behalf of a group of ASU students) started the petition titled "Arizona State University: Reduce The Costs Of Education For Arizona State University Students."

      http://www.change.org/petitions/arizona-state-board-of-regents-reduce-the-costs-of-education-for-arizona-state-university-students

      This petition requested signatures to support the reduction in the costs of education for ASU students.

      On December 7, 2011. Arizona State University BLOCKED ALL ACCESS to Change.org for ALL of it's over 70,000 students and over 5,000 faculty and employees.

      As such, students living in ASU campus, using ASU computers or accessing the internet through ASU's school WIFI are able to access Change.org.

      As a result, Not only can't ASU students sign the above petition but they are unable to sign ANY PETITION on the Change.org website.

      In addition, emails sent from any "change.org" email address to any student or faculty email address ending in "asu.edu" are also being blocked by Arizona State University. That means that ASU refuses to allow Change.org or anyone using Change.org to send Arizona State University students or faculty emails regarding petitions facilitated by Change.org.

      Not only is this outrageous, but it is a violation of the 1st Amendment rights of both ASU students as well the rights of Change.org and those with petitions hosted by Change.org to freely express themselves.

      As an graduate of ASU I expect respect for the constitution of the US to be practiced at this university. Open/honest communication might be a place for both parties to start.

      The decision makers at Arizona State need to reconsider what sounds like a VERY unsound move. They should know that something like this can become viral very quickly and make them look VERY stupid. Suppressing free speech or even giving the IMPRESSION of doing so will bite you in your tight little tushs' and you will wish you had never opened the can of worms. If the students want to complain about the cost of their tuition, etc., let them. It may hurt your ego, may even result in some type of reduction in costs but it in no way can cost you what this move will in the long run. Very foolish. VERY foolish.
