CUNY Board of Trustees protest

Alice Feng organized a Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee protest at East 25th Street Monday 25 June 2012, 15:30 till Monday 25 June 2012, 15:30

NEW YORK CITY – CUNY students call for a protest picket on the afternoon of Monday, June 25 outside the regular meeting of the CUNY Board of Trustees, when the Board will give massive pay raises to CUNY administrators, including a quarter-million dollar pay raise (54%) to Chancellor Goldstein.
CUNY is denying admission to more and more Black and Latino students based on its so-called rising "academic standards," while Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business was recently caught fixing the grades of failing students who work for Wall Street firms. CUNY uses one set of "academic standards" to deny admission to working-class Black and Latino students and fudges another set of "academic standards" for Wall Street executives whose tuition is paid for by their firms. Despite these twin scandals, the paper-pushing non-producing parasites on the Board are planning to congratulate administrators with outrageous salary increases on June 25.
Join the Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee on June 25 to protest against these outrages!

"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.

Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee organized a meeting in Edgewater, 160 Convent Avenue,New York, Friday 8 November 2013, to organize resistance. Those indicating their willingness to attend on the Whenever website included Rey Valentin.[2]

"RSCC Study: The CUNY Student Struggle, Then and Now"

Columbia University - Intercultural Resource Center (552 W 114st st by Broadway) Sunday 1 December 2013, organized by Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee.

The Fall 2013 semester has seen the revival of militant student movements in CUNY. Our movements are following in the footsteps of those who struggled in CUNY before us, in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. The struggles of the past opened up CUNY to oppressed people, but that is not the end of the story, it was only the first step. The struggle of our generation is going to be to seize CUNY for the people.
In order to do that we must study the past. RSCC is taking up this task by hosting a study on the history of revolutionary student movements in CUNY, to enrich our struggles going forward. Come out and learn with us, as we build towards a CUNY Spring!
