More or less free speech...

It seems that demonstrations follow Fox everywhere these days. First, in Acapulco. Now, at a private university in the D.F.

In this case, a 17 year old high school student held up a protest sign ("Se consumó el desafuero, no permitiremos que se consuma la democracia") and yelled at the President during an event at a local private university. (She attends the high school associated with the university.) Other students told her to shut up. And eventually, she was removed from the event, even after presenting her ID to prove she was a student there.

[Update 4/6/205: The student will not be punished in any way, after school officials met with her, her father, and their lawyers.]
