Freedom of Speech

Heng wants campuses to be areas protected by Freedom of speech

Heng's campaign ad was censored by Facebook for including images of the Cambodian genocide.

[3] Heng saw the censorship as hypocritical, since her parents had lived through the horrors of the Cambodian genocide under Pol Pot.

Her parents met near the Killing Fields.

They narrowly escaped death themselves, as 1 million Cambodians were killed within 4 years, roughly 25% of the population.

Her ad contained vivid depictions of famine and genocide.

Facebook allowed the ad to be published after 5 days of review.

Elizabeth views this as problematic, since it could hugely influence elections, especially had it happened near an election date.
