Some Wesleyan University students say they'll be protesting U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's appearance at the Connecticut campus.
Scalia will be speaking Thursday night at a sold-out lecture titled "The Originalist Approach to the First Amendment."
A group of students calling itself the "Scalia Welcoming Committee" says it will protest outside the lecture beginning at 6 p.m. They claim Scalia represents "unjust and oppressive political systems" and "corporate control of elections."
Members of the "Occupy" movement also plan to protest. The movement is critical of the Supreme Court's landmark ruling in the Citizens United case that declared political spending by corporations and unions free speech and made it possible for super PACs to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money.
Scalia voted with the 5-4 majority in the case.
