ACLU Wants SIU To Reverse Protest Policy
(Carbondale, IL) — The ACLU is asking Southern Illinois University to change its new protest policy. The group’s Ed Yohnka yesterday said SIU’s policy that prevents student athletes from protesting during games restricts free speech on campus. SIU adopted the policy after three cheerleaders knelt during the national anthem at SIU football games last year. The ACLU says SIU needs to welcome a full debate on the issues on campus.
