GAP Display `Sprawling,' `Vulgar' Exhibit Which Has No Place on Campus

GAP Display `Sprawling,' `Vulgar' Exhibit Which Has No Place on Campus

I am writing to protest the so-called "Genocide Awareness Project" that was set up in the quad by an outside group not affiliated with UNC. In case anyone missed it, it was a sprawling, vulgar, bloody display composed of huge pictures of holocaust victims, lynching victims and other atrocities coupled with questionable pictures of what they assert are aborted fetuses.

I won't mince words: vehement pro-lifers are a hate group, and they are known for terrorist activities. These activities are the reason the Chapel Hill Planned Parenthood has an elaborate security system, including bulletproof glass at the reception desk. They bomb clinics and they shoot doctors for performing legal procedures that they find offensive. Would the University allow the Ku Klux Klan a huge display during Black History Month?

This is the same category as homegrown terrorism, and it is grossly inappropriate to allow them to exhibit on campus, much less during Women's History Month.
