California university student council passes bill to ban flags

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 03/07/2015 - 12:45
(Reuters) - The student council of a southern California university passed a bill that would ban the hanging of any national flag in the common area of student government offices, school officials said on Friday. The measure, passed by six undergraduates on the University of California at Irvine's student legislative council, said that national flags bear a range of cultural significances that could be interpreted negatively by some. The resolution added that national flags - citing the United States flag in particular - have been "flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism" and "serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism." "Freedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible can be interpreted as hate speech," the bill said. The Executive Cabinet of the school's student government will meet on Saturday to discuss vetoing the bill, Associated Students of UCI President Reza Zomorrodian said in a statement.
