DePaul University in Chicago has invited Ward Churchill to its campus to speak on–of all things–human rights. The college’s Republicans have tried to mobilize opposition to Churchill’s visit, but have been blocked by the college’s administration. Amazingly, the Republicans were denied the right to post flyers criticizing Churchill’s visit on the ground that the flyers were “propaganda”!
Filmmaker Andrew Marcus has set up a terrific web site to follow the controversy, called Mental Ward. The site contains a wealth of information, including a video interview with the President of DePaul’s Republicans. This is a great example of a single-purpose web site.
