Professional troll Milo Yiannopoulos will be coming to UW as part of his

The UW College Republicans are hosting alt-right MIlo Yiannopoulous at UW. They claim that they don't agree with Milo's racist and transphobic rhetoric; they just believe in 'free speech.'

WE DO TOO!
We want to invite one and all to come collectively express your grief, love,

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20TH
IT GOES DOWN AT THE CAPITOL BUILDING AT NOON
BRING YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND THOSE STRANGERS THAT CROSS YOUR PATH
BRING YOUR LOVE AND RAGE
