On December 14, 2021, the MUN Students’ Union took to social media to call out the university for removal of their posters on campus.
They stated “Late last week, MUNSU put up over 100 of these posters around campus. We placed them primarily with other posters on cork boards. Some were placed on walls, but this was also almost exclusively in places where other non-MUNSU posters already were. Today, these are among the last few posters left up, two posters outside the MUNSU office. Nearly all of the posters have been removed from around campus even though other posters of a non-political nature remain, including in places that violate the university’s postering policy. Tell us again that the right to organize and peacefully protest is not under attack by the Dr. Timmons administration.”
