Case Overview

In October 2022, flyers critical of the Chinese Communist Party were torn down across George Washington University’s Foggy Bottom campus. The flyers, created and posted by GW Chinese students and removed by unknown individuals, criticized the CCP’s human rights abuses. GW investigated students posting similar flyers in February during the Beijing Winter Olympics. On November 1, FIRE wrote GW asking the administration to address this vandalism and censorship of political expression that the university’s free speech policies protect.
