Thursday, December 13, 2012

Salvation Army advocates demonstrated Thursday on the UC Berkeley campus against a proposal to ban Salvation Army activity on campus including collection boxes, an, holiday bell ringers.

The student senate says The Salvation Army discriminates against the LGBT community, a charge the Salvation Army vehemently denies.

Protestors from the campus chapter of "Young Americans for Liberty" say the UC Berkeley Student Senate should be embarrassed for going after the charity at all, let alone at the height of the holiday season.
