Pennies & Pepsi

To the Editor:

What we saw take place on the Concordia campus was a group of people protesting because a war criminal was given the right to give a speech at a Canadian educational institution to young impressionable Canadian minds.

Letters to The Gazette on the subject used words like "brutal force" and "hatred" when referring to empty Pepsi bottles and pennies. Perhaps you should address these words to snipers' rifles, machine-gun bullets, grenade launchers and 120-millimetre tank missiles.

It's not freedom of speech at risk here – it is a common decency towards your fellow human beings. Please don't make something great and admirable like freedom of speech here in Canada sound so lame.
