Protester banned from Western University

Occupier says he was unfairly targeted

A 44-year-old man who participated in a protest at Western University has been banned from the campus for one year, reports the London Free Press. Mike Roy was protesting an Israel On Campus event at the University Community Centre on Feb. 2 when he and about 25 other demonstrators were asked to leave. The protest, while peaceful, was unauthorized. Roy is a contributor to the campus radio station and has acted as a spokesperson for the Occupy London Movement. He says he was unfairly targeted and has started a petition to have the ban overturned.
