Bannon Expected to Address Berkeley, a Hotbed of Conflict Over Free Speech (194 hits)

The University of California, Berkeley, has erupted this year in response to planned speeches by conservative flamethrowers like Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter. On Tuesday, another figure was added to the mix: Stephen K. Bannon, the right-wing media executive and former chief strategist to President Trump.

Mr. Bannon has agreed to speak this month as part of Free Speech Week, a four-day event organized by The Berkeley Patriot, a conservative student publication. Mr. Yiannopoulos is also scheduled to appear.

Bryce Kasamoto, a Berkeley Patriot spokesman, confirmed that Mr. Bannon and Mr. Yiannopoulos would appear at the event, which runs from Sept. 24-27. He indicated that there would be additional speakers but said he could not name them yet because his group was “still working with the university and law enforcement to finalize our itinerary.”
