Georgetown Law students and faculty protest speech by Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Dozens of Georgetown University students gathered this morning on the steps of McDonough Hall to protest a scheduled speech by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The students were joined by faculty members who initially took a knee and later linked arms.

They took turns speaking into a bullhorn, decrying Sessions, the process the university used to bring him to campus, and to pose the questions they would have asked Sessions had they been allowed into the event.

“We, the disinvited, find it extraordinarily hypocritical that AG Sessions would lecture future attorneys about free speech on campus while excluding the wider student body,” third-year law student Ambur Smith said into the bullhorn.

Some of the roughly 100 students who gathered outside Georgetown’s law school wore duct tape over their mouths. They held signs that proclaimed, “DEPORT HATE,” FREE SPEECH IS NOT HATE SPEECH,” and Sessions is afraid of questions.”
