Brown Obama Brouhaha
Brown Students for Barack Obama (BSFBO) will be holding its kick-off meeting tonight at 10 PM in Wilson Hall, room 102, on the Main Green. I would urge any local Obama supporters to come and show support.
BSFBO won a great victory today by acquiring provisional student group status and securing our right to organize around a political campaign. Originally, University regulations precluded us from meeting, organizing, or advertising on University property. By arranging for provisional status, we have set an enormous precedent for students who wish to organize quickly and efficiently around a cause at the beginning of a semester, though they may not be “officially recognized.”
We’ve also avoided a potential confrontation with Brown’s Department of Public Safety on the Main Green. I guess that’s good, but I was kind of looking forward to standing on the Green in the rain with a megaphone…
