Protesters Swarm University of Chicago After Steve Bannon Accepts Invitation to Speak

Students, faculty members, and community members gathered to protest at the University of Chicago Thursday morning after news broke that former Trump adviser and Breitbart propagandist Steve Bannon had accepted an invitation to speak at its school of business. “We know that when Steve Bannon can saunter onto this campus and into this community unopposed that normalizes white supremacy,” said Everett Pelzman, a member of the UChicago Socialists. “That is a direct threat to the lives of black, brown, queer, undocumented and immigrant folks on this campus and in this community.” Bannon was invited by Professor Luigi Zingales to participate in a debate on the “economic benefits of globalization and immigration.” (Fox)
