AIM warned SUNY Buffalo students to behave – here’s what happened
April 14, 2023
Last week, record-setting swimmer Riley Gaines was “ambushed and physically hit” by a man and chased down a hallway by a protester while she was on the San Francisco State University campus to give a speech.
Accuracy in Media took action on the SFSU campus and leveraged our network of activists. But we also took the opportunity to hit the campus of the State University of New York at Buffalo, where Gaines was set to speak next.
There, AIM parked a mobile billboard on campus to warn students to behave civilly during Riley Gaines’ speech, and to show San Francisco State University what inclusivity really looks like.
And we succeeded. Riley Gaines was able to give her speech without interruption.
At SFSU, Gaines was physically assaulted and held in a nearby room for three hours for her protection from protesters who were outside shouting profanities and demanding money for her release. No protesters were arrested following the incident.
At SUNY Buffalo, a reported 25 to 30 protesters showed up. One was arrested outside the venue for harassment and disorderly conduct, according to Fox News.
