A performance of the Israel Ballet at the University at Buffalo last night was protested by UB Students for Justice in Palestine and the Palestine-Israel Committee of the Western New York Peace Center. 

Reports Jim Holstun, Professor of English, SUNY Buffalo: "One of our members (a member of both groups), Irene Morrison, was ejected from the pre-dance Q&A by, evidently, a university official who pronounced political free speech out of bounds for the evening." (Identified as: Robert J. Falgiano, Assistant Director of the Center for the Arts at the University at Buffalo.)

"It’s funny: Israelis come over here, and suddenly, everyone wants to start acting like they’re at a checkpoint."
