UFF Statement on Student Protests

The UFF Steering Committee has observed with grave concern the repression of student protest on campuses throughout the country and here in Florida, as reported in the ACLU of Florida’s recent statement.  So, we have endorsed the AAUP statement, “In Defense of the Right to Free Speech and Peaceful Protest on University Campuses”.  UFF joins with other unions and AAUP chapters in calling on institutional leaders in Florida and across the country to “reinstate student organizations shut down in recent months for political activity, to drop charges against peaceful protesters, to observe due process in disciplinary actions, to keep armed law enforcement off campuses, and to uphold fundamental freedoms for students and faculty”.
