McCorkle Place, the former site of Silent Sam, on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2019. Silent Sam is a Confederate statue whose presence on campus faced heated opposition in the form of protests and demonstrations. It was eventually forcibly removed by protestors. A number of protestors who opposed the statue have received trespass notices. Many activists believe these notices may be an attempt to silence them due to difficulty in appealing the notices.

Trespass notices were dropped for seven anti-Silent Sam demonstrators

On Aug. 30, Dwayne Dixon, an adjunct professor in the Department of Asian Studies, was charged with simple assault over allegations of striking editor-in-chief of Big League Politics, Patrick Howley. Along with his arrest, Dixon received a trespass notice, barring him from entering McCorkle Place, where Silent Sam once stood.
