Large Crowd Protests Ayers' Appearance At St. Mary's College Campus

January 28, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - - St. Mary's College in Moraga CA received a black eye this evening as a large and angry crowd of protesters turned out to provide counterpoint to the Ayers' presence.

The event was organized by the Simple Justice not Social Justice Coalition' an ad hoc organization comprised of many partners, that came together in response to Ayers.

Since the public became aware of the controversial founder of the Weather Underground's scheduled speech, college officials have stubbornly maintained that he was nothing more than a respected professor of education and a proponent of "social justice."

Others, more familiar with Ayers' violent history disagree.

According to Larry Grathwohl, who was at the event tonight [flown in by Move America Forward] the only FBI informant to crack the Weather Underground, "Bill Ayers is a domestic terrorist who is not repentant for what he did in the sixties and seventies...I know that his wife Bernardine Dohrn [Ayers' current wife] was responsible for placing a bomb at the Park Police station [San Francisco] that resulted in the death of officer McDonnell."

Parents of former students were also in attendance, one of which drove over 50 miles just to say, "I'm disappointed that this school has deteriorated to the point where you would invite someone like this so from this day forward, we will withdraw our support of this school both financially and in the times that we used to say that St. Mary's was a great school."

Former San Francisco Police Sgt James Bera was also at the protest. He was stationed at the Park Police station when it was attacked by the Weather Underground and produced a large fence staple, many of which were glued to the Weather Underground bomb, used for maximum anti-personnel effect, that killed officer McDonnell and seriously injured five of his fellow policemen.
