Under current CUNY leadership, students are facing a tuition increase of $1,500 over the next five year, in effect excluding many from access to education. At the same time there is an increased securitization on CUNY Campuses -- from the NYPD's systematic spying on Muslim Student Associations, to Stop and Frisk policies on and off our campuses, to attacks on peaceful students such as during the Board of Trustees Meeting on November 21, 2011 at Baruch College and May 2nd, 2012 at Brooklyn College.
We refuse to pay ever-increasing tuition rates for decreasing student services. We refuse to watch our tuition money used to fund campus security measures that target students of color and those exercising their right to freedom of speech.
