Taxpayers might object to Evergreen’s policy

OlympiaMay 2, 2013 

Recently, The Olympian reported that a blogger was forcibly ejected for attempting to take photographs at a workshop sponsored by the so-called Olympia Anarchist Convergence. Not only that, the blogger indicated his camera equipment, valued at $10,000, was stolen from him, and destroyed by being thrown off a third-story balcony.

This conference was held at, and under the auspices of, The Evergreen State College. I’m very doubtful the majority of tax-paying citizens in this state expect our publicly funded higher education institutions to be hosting anarchist workshops — in any event, not those put on by avowed anarchists.

The article does go a long way, however, toward confirming what I, and many others, have long suspected, that The Evergreen State College may be home to a substantial number of known anarchists.

Perhaps The Olympian could give us a little more information on the subject, like whether or not local law enforcement officials are following up on this matter?

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
