Occupy Stanford continues to plan protests and rallies despite challenges it has faced in igniting the student body, according to Joshua Loftus, an active member of the organization.
Stanford students gathered in White Plaza on Wednesday in order to promote the Occupy Wall Street protests on campus. The Occupy Wall Street movement has maintained a strong presence in the Bay Area.
Universities stand upon the bedrock of free speech. An open forum of ideas is the very essence of the academy. Stanford should pride itself on fostering an open environment in which all students may express their views without precondition, but this Editorial Board is disappointed by our University’s repeated refusal to meet even this basic standard.
The last three weeks have brought a slew of protests to campus. However, some students have regarded the University’s policy on campus disruptions with confusion.
The small patch of grass between the Claw and the passing bicycles has become a lively juggling ring. The number of performers swells, children stop by to learn and laugh and a few students take a moment in passing to watch clubs flying through the air in impossibly controlled patterns.
Despite its spontaneous feel, the gathering marks the weekly meeting of Stanford’s juggling club, Down with Gravity.
