In February of 2011
, eleven students that attended UC Irvine
and UC Riverside
went to a fundraising speech featuring Israeli Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren
, at the UC Irvine campus. During Oren's speech, students would stand up, shout an objection to Oren's speech, and then would allow themselves to be escorted by security
, essentially causing a "heckler's veto
." They were arrested, charged, and today found guilty
of disrupting Oren's speech
