StandWithUs UK:  Israeli Ambassador Daniel Taub's Speech at London School of Economics Was Shut Down

UK students shut down free speech at the London School of Economics during a speech being given by Israeli ambassador to Britain Daniel Taub. The protesters blocked 3/4 of the entrance (by their own admission) and when they couldn't stop Taub from talking, they pulled the fire alarm in order to silence him.

The alarm was turned off after a few minutes and the speech continued with protesters outside screaming about Israel. One student even bore a placard stating, "murderers not welcome at LSE."

Taub remained undeterred by the protest, stating that “people who shut down dialogue don't realize the value of a university space," and that "people that think the way to have a dialogue is to shut down dialogue, simply don't know what university is all about.”
