Boston College: Controversial Speaker Disinvited
Boston College not only banned former Weather Underground member William Ayers from campus but also refused to permit him to speak on campus via satellite to an audience limited to members of the BC community, citing "security issues." Administrators have not replied to any of FIRE's letters, asking them to reaffirm their commitment to free speech.
