Conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos announced Friday he’s planning a “Free Speech Week” to take place at the University of California, Berkeley later this year.

Events will focus on various ideologies or movements that the former Breitbart editor has identified as enemies of free speech.

“Each day will be dedicated to a different enemy of free speech, including feminism, Black Lives Matter and Islam,” wrote Yiannopoulos in a Facebook post Friday.

“We will hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression and the First Amendment. All will be welcome, regardless of political affiliation.” (RELATED: Math And Naval ROTC Student Talks Winning Milo’s Privilege Grant)

Yiannopoulos went on to say that if Berkeley does not help plan and execute the event, “Free Speech Week” will become a month-long event.

“We will loudly reject the venomous hectoring and moral hypocrisy of social justice warriors,” stated Yiannopoulos. “Free speech belongs to everyone — not just the spoilt brats of the academy.”

“I intend to return Berkeley to its rightful place as the home of free speech — whether university administrators and violent far-left antifa thugs like it or not.”

Yiannopoulos ended his post by saying he will soon release more details about his comeback as well as a “Cinco de Milo” event on May 5.

The past few months have placed Berkeley, Calif., at the center of numerous confrontations between Trump supporters and antifascist protesters.
