Per Campus Reform, some UCLA students rallied in support of conservative professor Keith Fink, who is engaged in a back-and-forth censorship controversy with his department:

University of California, Los Angeles students held a rally last week to support popular conservative professor Keith Fink in his ongoing fight against administrative censorship.

“We organized the protest last Friday because Professor Keith Fink has positively touched the lives of thousands of Bruins,” UCLA student Mick Mathis, a member of the “Keep Fink” group that organized the demonstration, told Campus Reform. “His four classes are among the most popular in the entire school.”

The students carried signs bearing phrases like “Free speech is under attack” and “Keep your agenda out of our classroom,” according to The Los Angeles Daily News, before delivering a list of demands to Laura Gomez, interim dean of the Division of Social Sciences and the person who will cast the deciding vote on Fink’s recent “excellence review,” the outcome of which will determine his future as a member of the UCLA faculty.
