Milo Yiannopoulos posted on Facebook Friday afternoon, announcing his plan to return to Berkeley later this year for a multi-day event called “Milos Free Speech Week” after violence canceled his last appearance, the Gateway Pundit reports.
In February, the former Breitbart senior editor was scheduled to speak at UC Berkeley, but was forced to cancel after fiery protests erupted.
In his post, Yiannopoulos said he intends to make the event open to all regardless of their political affiliation and to “hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression.”
He also said that he would still move ahead with the event, scheduled for later this year, regardless if UC Berkeley help coordinate the event or not.
Friday’s announcement comes as the UC Berkeley rescheduled conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s April 27 appearance to May 2, citing security concerns.
Coulter refused the new date, saying she would still continue as originally scheduled.
