"Morales / Shakur Center" student suspensions event

On October 28, 2013, a City College administrator suspended Tafadar Sourov and Khalil Vasquez, two students who led demonstrations against the administration’s illegal raid and seizure of the Guillermo Morales / Assata Shakur Community Center. The Morales / Shakur Center is a space that has existed at City College for more than 20 years and was first won in 1989 through a mass student strike and occupations throughout CUNY.

In response to the attacks on our student leaders, students and community say: WE ARE NOT AFRAID. Repression will not end the campaign to save the Morales / Shakur Center or the broader struggle to liberate CUNY for the people. Hundreds on campus and in the community will follow their example. Any punitive measures against Taffy and Khalil will only be a lesson to the people that the CCNY administration dismisses the people’s concerns and that the people must escalate their mass actions.
Taffy and Khalil are fighting for the people, defending the last autonomous campus space that serves the community and defending the legacy of the people’s revolutionary heroes. THE PEOPLE MUST DEFEND TAFFY AND KHALIL. The people cannot stand aside and look as the City College administration attempts to isolate them and promote fake sellout student leaders who want to negotiate away the Center. The Center was won through struggle and will be reclaimed through struggle.

Our position as Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee is that there is no such thing as People’s Liberation without Queer and Trans Liberation.

Police killing protest

On April 5 2018, about 2000 people marched in the streets of Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights in response to the NYPD’s killing of Saheed Vassell.

The evening began with a rally on the corner of Utica Avenue and Montgomery Street, the site where the NYPD pulled up and shot Saheed Vassell in the back. They arrived after three people called 911, claiming that Vassell was carrying a gun. However, on closer inspection, it was a silver shower head.

There was a round of speeches given by activists and people who knew Saheed. Many mentioned the fact that Saheed was well known in the neighborhood and regularly walked around the different stores.

Nerdeen Kiswani, an organizer with Within Our Lifetime, and whose father has a store on the block, said, “People who live here, people who worked here all knew Saheed. They knew that he walk around with various objects that he found. He would come into my dad’s store and show off what he had. Then my dad would give him water.” She continued talking about how newcomers and gentrifiers can’t come to the neighborhood and expect to change it, but rather have to learn about the community, if anything.[10]
