Story in Occupied Oakland Tribune: Suspended from Chabot College: a preliminary statement by Joshua Hewitt, reblogged here:
The following is a statement from Joshua Hewitt, aka @DJ_JDot.
I was passing
papersout fliers for Occupy Oakland’s January 28 Move In Day action in front of the Chabot Community College radio station in Hayward, CA and a security guard pulled up in a car and asked me if I had permission from the office of student life.
“I have rights,” I said. “The right to free education which I don’t get and the First Amendment. Since I don’t have one of those rights–because I pay too much for not enough education–I’m gonna use my other right.”
He called the other security guard, Nathan Moore, and they took my info. The security car and person drove and walked until I was off campus and told me if I’m back on campus they’ll call the Hayward Police Department to come get me.
And I’m suspended until I get a call to set an appointment up with a dean.
UPDATE: In case you’re wondering, yes, Nathan Moore has been doxed by @VizFoSho.
UPDATE 2: Fellow Chabot-student @BellaEiko has also written about this issue here.
UPDATE 3: Joshua has received a call from the VP of Student Services to setup a meeting. Expect a hasty retreat on the part of Chabot.
