Antifa “terrorizes” Vancouver Greek-Orthodox community into cancelling free speech event after threats of violence
In a hastily written late night news release, the Hellenic Community of Vancouver announced that it will be cancelling a rental contract with the UBC Free Speech club.
The event which was supposed to take place on Friday, March 14th featured political commentators Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern.
The announcement claimed that the Hellenic community still stands by the principle of free speech but the decision was made with the safety of its members in mind.
"Specifically, threats of violence against our members by various political fringe groups and one domestic terrorist organization are now deemed very credible, and have escalated in the last 48 hours," reads the statement. "We were, therefore, obligated to act immediately."
