Students for Justice in Palestine condemns conservative speaker event

Posted on by

first_imgYoung Americans for Freedom, which is hosting Ben Shapiro, has spent approximately $1,000 creating a protest space for students during the event in Alumni Park. (Adriana Sanchez | Daily Trojan)Students for Justice in Palestine released a new statement on social media Wednesday condemning the upcoming event with conservative commentator Ben Shapiro organized by the Young Americans for Freedom.“We object to YAF’s endeavor to enshrine hatred as fact,” the statement read. “We object to USC’s callous disregard for marginalized students on campus. Above all, we object to this shameless attempt by YAF and its billionaire donors to push their dehumanizing political agenda.”The statement follows concerns from SJP regarding miscommunication with Trojan Events Services about designated locations where the group will be allowed to protest. Assistant Department of Public Safety Chief David Carlisle said the University is not planning to block off any parts of campus during the Shapiro event. DPS is encouraging students to protest in areas away from Bovard Auditorium to avoid violence. YAF has also spent an estimated $1,000 on creating a designated protest space, which will most likely be at Alumni Park, YAF chairman Maxwell Brandon said. There will be fencing at the space to separate those attending the event from those protesting to avoid potential problems, he said. “They can protest all they want as long as they’re not getting violent,” Brandon said. “Unfortunately the school felt it was necessary based on past history at these events where people in our position have gotten violent.”SJP said they will still protest at Tommy Trojan during the event. In the statement, SJP added that by allowing Shapiro to speak on campus, the University is disregarding the well-being of its students. “As long as USC provides a platform for these ideas with students’ money, they enable violence, too,” the statement read. “Violence that we have a moral obligation to respond to, even if we do not experience it firsthand, and violence that we must protect ourselves from, when we do.”The statement was tagged with the hashtag #SoundTheAlarm, which was used in a similar statement shared by the Black Student Assembly and other cultural assemblies last Thursday. The initial statement erroneously said that the University was providing funds to YAF for extra security and that K-9s and undercover police officers from the Los Angeles Police Department would be present at the event. However, that is not the case, according to DPS officials; DPS will be joined by “a modest amount” of LAPD officers at the event, while the rest of the officers will be on standby.“It is our responsibility to assess the needs and provide sufficient resources to ensure the safety of members of our campus community and event participants,” DPS Chief John Thomas said in a statement to the Daily Trojan last weekend. “Our role is to make sure that all parties on campus may safely exercise their first amendment rights in accordance with university policy.”last_img read more

Dodgers’ Justin Turner makes a few adjustments, shows signs of shaking off slow start

Posted on by

first_imgOn Saturday, he hit his first home run of the season, a solo shot in the eighth inning, as the Dodgers extended their lead on the Blue Jays. He also had two doubles.Turner had five extra-base hits in all of April.Roberts pointed to a few mechanical adjustments that Turner made with his swing in recent weeks and noted that he “stayed above the baseball a little better.”“That little minor adjustment is not only big for him, but for us,” Roberts said.Second baseman Howie Kendrick, also off to a slow start, hit .333 with three RBIs on the trip after hitting .151 in April. The bit of resurgence for the Dodgers’ bats in the past week has coincided with an improved Justin Turner.The third baseman hit .247 and slugged .325 in April, but he hit .300/.417.500 on the team’s five-game interleague trip to Tampa Bay and Toronto.“It was just a matter of time for JT,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Turner was slowed in spring training after returning from offseason microfracture surgery on his left knee. As far as Kendrick’s hitting revival, Roberts offered a similar assessment.“He was getting underneath it a little bit, and staying above the baseball has helped him,” Roberts said. “He’s still hitting the balls hard. As far as quality at-bats and quality of contact, in the last week, Howie is right up there.”No UtleyChase Utley was not in the lineup for the Dodgers on Monday. Utley stirred emotions in Game 2 of the NL Division Series last October when his takeout slide into second base injured New York shortstop Ruben Tejada, who ended up with a broken right fibula.The Mets defeated the Dodgers in five games and eventually advanced to the World Series, but Monday’s meeting was the first since the NLDS.Roberts said he did not expect any retaliation from New York during the four-game series.“I know we’ve turned the page on it,” he said. “It was very unfortunate. It was not the intention in there.”Utley was not the only left-handed bat to get a day off, as left fielder Carl Crawford, center fielder Joc Pederson and shortstop Corey Seager were all out of the lineup against Mets left-hander Steven Matz.After last year’s slide, Utley was handed a two-game suspension that was later overturned.More ’pens for Mccarthy, RyuBrandon McCarthy, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, will face live hitters next week, Roberts said. It’s the next hurdle to clear before the right-hander begins a rehab assignment.McCarthy threw a bullpen session at Dodger Stadium on Monday that lasted three innings.“He looked really good,” said Roberts, who stood in the batter’s box to simulate hitters. McCarthy’s fastball touched 89 mph and he mixed in other pitches as well, Roberts said.Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) throws his next bullpen Tuesday. He is still waiting to face live hitters, as well.AlsoRelief pitcher Casey Fien was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City after the Dodgers claimed off waivers two days earlier. Fien gave up 12 runs in 13 2/3 innings with the Minnesota Twins this season before the right-hander was designated for assignment. … Top prospect Julios Urias has thrown 16 consecutive scoreless innings after adding six at Oklahoma City on Monday. Urias gave up four hits, struck out four and walked three against the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. His 1.50 ERA leads the Pacific Coast League.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
