Thursday, February 03, 2005 - Education - New UMass Protest Limits Criticized "AMHERST, Mass. -- New protest guidelines added to the University of Massachusetts code of student conduct are being criticized as unconstitutional because they limit the rights to speak, assemble and peacefully protest. The university administration on Tuesday amended the student code of conduct to make loud and disruptive protests inside campus buildings punishable by expulsion. 'Campus buildings are for university business. Any form of demonstration that interferes with university business in office or classroom spaces is a violation of this code,' the new rules read."
