Last week’s protest on campus against the dining choices presented at Atlantic Dining Hall was example of democracy in action. It was also, technically, illegal. That’s set to change with a new law passed by Student Government on Friday. On April 8, the House of Representatives passed Boca Raton House Bill 16-06, which makes the entire campus a place for free speech. The current laws regarding protest and free speech say that students and university organizations must file a free speech form.
