BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - An adjunct instructor at the University at Buffalo was hauled off in handcuffs after protesting a display by a student club.
UB spokesman John DellaContrada tells News 4 that Laura Curry, who works in the media study department, was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with disorderly conduct. A video of her arrest was posted to YouTube and is below. Be aware the video contains offensive language:
DellaContrada says Curry was protesting a display by UB Students for Life, a group that is anti-abortion. He says student groups are allowed to reserve space for such displays, stating:
"The University at Buffalo strives to create an environment in which diverse opinions can be expressed and heard. As a public university, it is a fundamental value of UB that all members of the campus community and their invited guests have a right to peacefully express their views and opinions, regardless of whether others may disagree with those expressions."
The spokesman did not say what actions the university will take against Curry over her arrest, other than to state that UB also preserves the right of protesters "to oppose the views or opinions of others, but not in such a way as to limit or prevent the speaker's freedom of expression or interfere with university operations."
