BREAKING NEWS: PSM CONFERENCE TO BE AT GASTON HALL AT GEORGETOWN, NOW CLOSED TO PUBLIC TO CONCEAL WHAT GOES ON INSIDE:
Below is a letter sent to administrators at GU:
It is eminently clear from their content that one of these two
Georgetown.edu pages is not telling the truth about the Palestine
Solidarity Movement conference next week. Could you please clarify for us, and the benefit of the Georgetown community, which of Georgetown's statements is true and which is not?
PSM Conference: Frequently Asked Questions
Who will the conference be open to?
Who will the conference be open to? (Jan-11-06 11:35 am)
"The student sponsors of the conference have determined that registration will be open to all members of the academic community and the public. According to Georgetown policies, programs that are open to the public must be open to all, regardless of viewpoint. The conference has been structured to require the participants to register. Anyone who wishes to register may do so, up to the capacity of the facilities in which the conference is being held. Georgetown staff members are working with the student organizers to ensure that there is a clear understanding, and proper implementation, of university policies concerning access, speech and expression at such events."
However, at the link below on GU's own website it says regarding the PSM Conference:
"This event has not been marked as open to the public."
Since these two statements are obviously incompatible, one is true and the other is false and inaccurate. I am registered to attend this conference myself and I would be extremely angry at Georgetown for posting misleading information were I to spend twelve hours flying to and from Washington, spending a couple of hundred dollars on lodging, and then finding that I could not get into the conference because of my point of view or as a member of a free press. Is Georgetown stonewalling the public from this training and strategy session to keep the truth from coming out?
If the Georgetown administration had any common sense after telling the organizers they cannot import Hizbollah and Hamas terrorists and their supporters from overseas as "mystery guests" at the Conference, Georgetown would cancel this anti-Semitic hate fest. Just imagine if another ethnicity other than Jews was used as the target by a similar conference. But Jews, be they in the Middle East or USA are considered legitimate targets and training and strategizing to aid those who murder them is considered "academic discourse" at Georgetown (read Is Anti-Zionism not Anti-Semitism located under “Stop the ISM” on the top navigation bar of this website).
