2006_05_columbia.jpgSince Senator John McCain will be speaking at the Columbia College Class Day no matter what, students are planning on protesting him before the festivities. They are going to gather at 8:30AM on Tuesday, May 16, to protest and distribute literature, though we're not sure if they are going to sit out Class Day itself and boycott the ceremony from 10AM-12:30PM. But they have set up the website, mccainatcolumbia.com to discuss the issue, with sections about McCain's views on gay rights, abortion, Iraq, and his speaking at Liberty University. You can also add comments that may be distributed on Class Day.

McCain is also scheduled to be the New School commencement address speaker, which upsets many people.
