Orange County DA: Charge me for interrupting for human rights
On February 8, 2010, protestors at the University of California-Irvine spoke out one by one during a speech by Israel's ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren. They did so to give voice to the people silenced by the policies of Oren's government. After their protest, they faced a crackdown from their university, which suspended the organization that many of them belonged to, the Muslim Students Union. And now they face unprecedented criminal charges from the Orange County DA.
