Today, Carleton Lifeline is beginning a new project on campus called “Choice”Chain which entails standing with hand held graphic images and asking people what they think about abortion. In light of the arrests and the attempt at exhibiting the “Genocide Awareness Project”, it is very uncertain at how this attempt to show graphic images will go. We have 2 advantages with “Choice” Chain that we did not have with GAP.
1) We do not have to book space. Because we are simply standing with signs (lots of students do this), to our knowledge we do not have to book standing space at the University- the idea itself is insane. Is the University going to regulate where one can stand and with what? We will find out
2) “Choice” Chain does not classify as an event because we have nothing to set up. In this way, the University cannot tell us we had to book the space to stand outside in high traffic areas.Please keep us in your thoughts today and that I will have the right words to say at the right time. Thank you all for your continued support!
