Drop the Charges Against the CUNY Students and Employees Arrested at CCNY the Night of April 30

May 06, 2024

The Professional Staff Congress calls on the CUNY Chancellor to urge the District Attorney to drop the charges against the CUNY students and employees arrested the night of April 30 during the NYPD sweep of the CCNY Gaza Solidarity Encampment. Such demonstrations for Palestinian solidarity and divestment from Israel have now reached 80 campuses nationwide, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education, and administrators have responded in many different ways. The CUNY administration should make every effort to prevent the students and employees who were taken into custody on April 30 from carrying criminal records into their futures and observe their due process rights under internal CUNY policies.
