Students started to defended their right to participate in politics and protested against the Vietnam war in 1964 because of the administration’s decision to ban all funds and propaganda for any political party or social ideals they did not agree with. This led to a small group of students to take action by writing their point of view in the Free-Speech Movement News Letters.
I am curious as to what their definition of propaganda was myself, but I want to know if you guys think banning the fundraising and propaganda was a smart decision or not?

I believe that banning the fundraising and propaganda for a lot of these student groups was not the best decision for the administration giving the uprising it would cause. In banning propaganda and fundraising you are only fueling these student revolts even more for students will find ways to continue to push their message worldwide whether it be with or without propaganda.
