Berkeley Unified School District: Fire Yvette Felarca
On June 26, 2016, Yvette Felarca was caught on video assaulting a man at a white nationalist rally in Sacramento. She punched the man in the stomach repeatedly, before throwing him to the ground. Felarca is a 7th and 8th grade Humanities teacher at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Berkeley. Among her responsibilities is teaching the students under her tutelage about the Bill of Rights. Someone who does not believe in free speech should not teach kids about their constitutional rights. Felarca's activity would get a student expelled at best, or jailed at worst. And yet she's meant to be a role model for students. She has repeatedly advocated the use of militant, violent tactics to shut down opponents of her personal political pack, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). They claim that they're "fighting the good fight," trying to stop "fascism" from taking hold in Berkeley. He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster. I don't care if they're fascists. As Americans, they have a right to free speech. Assaulting people for their political views is undemocratic, un-American, and unacceptable. In the United States of America, people who disagree argue with each other, or agree to disagree. They do not try to intimidate others into agreeing with them. They do not attack people for disagreeing with them. That's the realm of third-world countries, not the oldest democracy on Earth. By continuing to employ Yvette Felarca, and enable BAMN, the Berkeley Unified School District is subverting democracy. Now, they shelter her, refusing to publicly punish her for actions completely unbecoming of a teacher. I am a Berkeley resident. I went to King. And I am horrified that the BUSD tolerates this behavior. It's common sense. Someone who does not believe in the right to free speech should not teach children about the Bill of Rights. As a supporter of free speech for all, I am petitioning Donald Evans, Superintendent of the Berkeley Unified School District, and Beatriz Leyva-Cutler, President of the Berkeley School Board, to fire Yvette Felarca. To mis-quote Voltaire: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Stop Censorship on Youtube!
YouTube updated their rules awhile ago to include some revisions that went mostly unnoticed. Most of these updates were of little concern to most content creators, that is except for these two edits; - Inappropriate language, including harassment, profanity and vulgar language - Controversial or sensitive subjects and events, including subjects related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and tragedies, even if graphic imagery is not shown These changes blatantly violate the free speech of content creators who rely on YouTube to pay their rent. These people are out of a job if their videos are demonetized! Take, for instance, Philip DeFranco. He is a YouTuber who reports on real world events as well as drama on YouTube. Recently, he posted this video which explains that YouTube is demonetizing many of his videos. He makes a comment during this video saying that it looks like youtube is trying to push some people off the site simply because they are not ad friendly This is censorship, and Philip is not the only one affected by it. Many YouTubers, smaller and bigger, have and will be affected by this. This will shake the community, forcing content creators to water down their content simply to continue making money off their videos. People rely on YouTube to pay for the rent and livelihoods of themselves and their families. Just because someone curses in a video or expresses an unpopular opinion doesn't mean they should be denied the right to make money and speak freely. YouTube has always been a source for unbiased, unfiltered, and free speech. This movement seems to be attempting to change that and create a community of content creators scared to speak their minds simply because doing so could ruin their careers and leave them and their families with no "ad friendly" videos and no income. We cannot ignore this issue as viewers, nor as content creators. As viewers, we must realize the position this puts our favorite content creators in; either be fake and censor their videos to pay their wages, not allowing for unpopular opinions, or to go against the flow of ad rules and risk losing the money they make. As content creators, you must realize and assess the threat of this to your channel, as it may make your livelihood fall to shreds in front of you. If you want the internet to remain a place for free and open speech, please sign this petition. Share it with others. Because this has to get out there. We cannot sit back and hope everything fixes itself anymore, because it wont. We must bring about change where change is needed. Speak out on this issue! Thank you for signing, and please have a wonderful day. #StopYoutubeCensorship
Petition to University of British Columbia, Progressive Librarians Guild
Protect Feminist Books at Vancouver Women's Library
A book-banning campaign by Gays Against Gentrification (GAG) is demanding the Vancouver Woman's Library (VWL) remove and ban over twenty feminist books from their collection. These works -- written by renowned women authors who have a long history of engaging in critical analysis against the oppression of women as a class -- focus on female exploitation, male supremacy, violence against women, reproductive freedom, lesbian identity, women's health and buddhist mindfulness. As a matter of principle and in defense of freedom of speech and thought, no library should ever ban any books under any circumstance - especially ones written by and for women at the VWL. As fascism takes deeper root throughout the world, it is more important than ever that any attempt to silence women in their struggle for liberation is resisted by all, at every moment. We urge the Progressive Librarians Association to publicly support the VML as they reject these draconian demands and choose to keep these books on their shelves.
Petition to Dr. Bob Kustra, Matt Freeman
Keep Diversity within the University! Keep Dr. Scott Yenor!
The American Constitution guarantees free speech as a First Amendment right. Universities in the U.S. are supposed to be bastions of freedom of thought and speech. Ideas are *ideally* the currency of campus exchange. Sadly, leftist campus "groupthink" today is now silencing any and all opponents. Boise State University may witness a new casualty-to-be. Dr. Scott Yenor expresses well-researched, thoughtful opinions in written pieces about feminism and transgender thought. His opinions are not in-line with leftist ideology. Here is one specific article he penned which sparked a lot of controversy, titled "Transgender Activists Are Seeking to Undermine Parental Rights": https://sps.boisestate.edu/politicalscience/2017/08/08/scott-yenor-3/ Across campus on September 6th, 2017, a widely disseminated flyer claimed that Yenor has blood on his hands and should be fired. Online, people are petitioning to fire him as well. The situation is intense and illogical. If people really disagree with him, why do they not simply engage in scholarly dialogue with him? Why do they not write their own articles, or engage him in civil debate? Why is their reaction to his opinion to simply fire him? Why are they so afraid of his ideas and beliefs that they literally have to eliminate him to neutralize him? Are we so backwards and afraid nowadays? People who feel firm and confident in their position on an issue generally do not have to fire others to win a debate. Firing someone because you cannot intellectually engage with them is similar to burning censored books. Please support Dr. Scott Yenor! If we fire every faculty member who dissents from a portion of student opinion, then universities will be boring and coercive. Young minds will not be challenged and stretched. Instead, minds will be conformed into a monotone, homogeneous norm. We need to support diversity within faculty. Dr. Scott Yenor is a highly qualified professor who needs to stay at Boise State. Regardless of political affiliation or personal beliefs, let us all calmly and reasonably unite in our collective American ideal (and guaranteed right!) of free speech. Let us reject hateful polemics against a qualified professor. Let us petition Dr. Bob Kustra, the president of Boise State University, and Mr. Matt Freeman, the Executive Director of the Idaho State Board of Education, to keep Dr. Yenor at Boise State. This petition was written and created by an undergraduate student at Boise State University. The author can be contacted for access to the sources which are the basis of the claims she made above. For example, the author has access to a photo of the flyer disseminated across campus which called for Dr. Yenor's termination, the link to the petition calling for Yenor's termination, and the links to three different websites affirming that Yenor's article mentioned above (titled "Transgender Activists Are Seeking to Undermine Parental Rights") was specifically one article that sparked a lot of controversy. Please contact the author with any questions at FreeSpeechIsDiversity@outlook.com. Thank you very much for your concern in this matter.

REINSTATE PROFESSOR LISA DURDEN! EQUALITY FOR ADJUNCTS!
#ReinstateProfessorLisaDurden to her position as adjunct professor at Essex County College IMMEDIATELY! ABOUT THE CASELisa Durden, producer, filmmaker, media commentator and professor, appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson on June 6th. Carlson insulted her repeatedly (“demented, separatist, Nazi”) for defending the Black Lives Matter movement’s right to have Black only safe space event for Memorial Day. Professor Durden succinctly and cogently defended her principled position and exposed Tucker’s white male fragility for what it was -- a childish tantrum. Less than 48 hours later, Professor Lisa Durden was summarily suspended by Essex County College (ECC), where she teaches media and effective speech. Without union representation at the meeting, ECC administrators told her that she was suspended because of her appearance on Fox News. She was told to leave the building and not return. Instead of defending Professor Durden’s right to free speech and congratulating her on standing up to racism and sexism, the administration at the Predominantly Black Institution chose to effectively fire this accomplished media professional and educator. Professor Lisa Durden is a lifelong Newark, NJ resident who has given her time and expertise generously to the youth of the city. She has provided highly competitive internships in New York media for Essex County College students for a decade. She was recently honored by the City of Newark for her outstanding work in media with women and young people. Professor Durden has braved racist death threats from the alt right movement to speak truth to power on national television. Why is Essex County College firing a beloved professor for exercising her First Amendment right? In Trump’s America are Black Women professors not allowed the right to free speech? We demand that Professor Lisa Durden be reinstated to her position and given her full course load (12 credits per semester teaching Mass Communications and Effective Speech classes) that she was assigned for the full 2017/2018 academic year. We demand equality for adjunct, contingent and junior faculty in pay and treatment. Nationwide, higher education administrations have created an apartheid system, paying themselves grandiose salaries of $200,000+ while junior, contingent and adjunct faculty are paid peanuts. Adjunct faculty are often forced to sleep in their cars and go on food stamps because they cannot survive the poverty wages and insecure, short term, “at will” employment that colleges force on them. Administrators pit adjunct and full time faculty against each other and use their disgusting treatment of adjunct labor to scare full time faculty into submission. This diminishes the quality of education for students, even as their tuition skyrockets. We demand full equality in pay and treatment among adjunct, contract and full-time, tenured faculty!
