1 Pm 6th Day Bust Rally Dome
from 2 pm Thursday afternoon until 2 am Tuesday morning, the administrative wing of the SS Building was occupied by the Ah Hoc Committee to End Political Suppression. 300 people were in the building at all times, including overnight, and during the day the number exceeded 700.
Our demands are:
1. Reinstate the three suspended students.
2. Drop all charges against them.
3. Rehire Sheila Delany
4. Revoke the Man-Kahn secrecy Report
Last night President McMurray responded to our demands with a personally delivered statement. This statement was deceptive in many ways and was submitted too late for us to provide a detailed answer. We planned, therefore, to give our analysis and our answers at a rally today.
President McMurray did not want to give us that opportunity, and asked the police to enforce his suppression of this protest. Who were the plaintiffs responsible for bringing police on campus? Professors Todd, Fontenel, and Finkelstein. Students were threatened with suspension and possible arrest; faculty were threatened with immediate suspension without pay. 30 police vans were ready to move on campus, doubtless representing the administrations desire for “reasoned dialogue.” 42 students were arrested.

THIS PROTEST HAS ALREADY CHANGED THE NATURE OF POLITICAL LIFE ON THE QUEENS COLLEGE CAMPUS. POLITICAL SUPPRESSION IS ONLY BEGINNING HERE, AND SO IS RESISTANCE TO POLITICAL SUPRESSION.
PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS. JOIN US AT THE 6TH DAY BUST RALLY, 1PM, AT THE DOME
