This is a reminder of the event on the OSU Quad tomorrow at 2:30 pm in support of Professor Higginbotham and the Robinson students. Please stop by if you can. Click here for directions.
Kathryn Higley sent out an email today to the students and staff giving false information about the sponsorship of the event and strongly implying that the Linn County Republicans and other supporters of ours may try to block access to or occupy the radiation center where the students and staff work (far from the Quad) as a part of the demonstration. This is, of course, entirely false.
Efforts have been underway within Higley's department to induce students to protest this event. At one of these, David Hamby, Higley's co-instigator of the actions against the students and professor, occupied himself by walking back and forth outside the meeting.
The students and faculty are in a difficult position. They have already seen a distinguished professor and some excellent students targeted by Hamby, Higley, and retainers in an attempt to throw them out of OSU. Also, defamatory false statements have been made to them.
We welcome our first opportunity to talk with these students tomorrow afternoon.
