The "Bring Professor Ayers to Georgia Southern University" sign now

This petition is for those who feel that the cancellation of Professor William Ayers March 2nd presentation to the Georgia Southern University community is a violation of academic freedom. We remind the persons responsible for this decision of the Universitys Mission Statement which pledges that Georgia Southern University will remain dedicated to the free exchange of ideas.

The cancellation of Professor Ayers presentation has denied students and faculty an opportunity to hear what a very important, if controversial, historical figure and well-respected scholar had to say. We believe the university is most accountable to the students, faculty and staff who work and live here. Our voices must be heard.

We, the undersigned, urge the administration to reconsider their decision and bring Professor Ayers to campus. It is the right thing to do.
