Irvine 11 update

Nothing’s happened, but there’s plenty of news.  Coverage continues this morning on NPR.

Recall (post here): The Irvine 11 are students who disrupted Israeli ambassador Michael Oren’s speech here at UCI.  After facing discipline on campus, they now face criminal charges from the Orange County DA.  This ill-considered prosecution has helped bring national attention to the students and their cause, vindicating what seemed like a poor protest strategy by the students.
