Members of the Kent State Anti-War Committee will have a forum for their protest experiences at 8 p.m. tonight in the Kiva.

The forum is titled “Politics in the Streets: A discussion on police repression at the 2008 Republican National Convention protests.”

Tim Smith, professor of journalism and mass communication, will also speak about terrorism and its impact on freedom in America, he said.

“Although Obama won the presidency,” said anti-war committee member Yvette Coil, “state repression will continue against the people until the people challenge the government and laws that stifle dissent.”
