Protests that harm our image

Reader comment on item: The War on Campus

Submitted by Gloria Schlosberg (United States), Sep 17, 2002 at 14:26

Regarding the differing forms of political protest on campuses here and in Canada, I suggest that the universities make efforts to temper these protests by discussing the negativity of strident versus passive protests. Perhaps a course could be offered to speak to our democratic freedom of protest as opposed to vigilantism.

Where should I write to make this suggestion to the most violent of the student bodies in universities, and who would be a convincing teacher/lecuturer that would be acceptable to the audience?
