Not Gonna Take It Anymore!

After reaching over 74,000 students last term, and over 61,000 already this term, the All Powerful Nikki Benoit was looking for a new challenge.

In consultation with a free-speech lawyer, Nikki decided to challenge the idea of "free speech" zones that certain colleges use to restrict leafleters.

At Orange Coast College last Thursday, Nikki refused to move to the "free speech" zone, and furthermore, refused to leave when so ordered.

Her subsequent detention made the front page of the paper, and, more importantly, gives her pro-bono attorney the opportunity to sue on behalf of Nikki's -- and other leafleters' -- constitutional rights.

Congratulations to Nikki for standing up for her right to stand up for the animals!
