UC San Diego has invited the Dalai Lama as principal commencement speaker.
The Chinese Students and Scholars Association is threatening to do something. The Association said in a statement: “(I)f the university insists on acting unilaterally and inviting the Dalai Lama to give a speech at the graduation ceremony, our association vows to take further measures to firmly resist the university’s unreasonable behavior. Specific details of these measures will be outlined in our future statements.”
Or, “Our definition of diversity and inclusiveness is the proper definition. Anybody else’s definition sucks, and we won’t listen.”
Other students “firmly resisted” in Tiananmen Square. Fortunately for the UCSD students, their firm resistance will happen here, and not in their homeland.
