In November 2011, Auburn University student Eric Philips was required to remove a banner supporting Ron Paul's presidential campaign from the inside of his dormitory window. Philips documented numerous examples of other students not being asked to do the same. In this video, Eric Philips fills you in on the details of Auburn's efforts to censor his viewpoint and how you can fight back against censorship on your own campus.


Produced by Ted Balaker. Interview by Greg Lukianoff. Music by Myles Cochran (Magnatune Records).
