NYU administration gets tough!
Wow, the folks running New York University are threatening to expel students for conducting a cafeteria sit-in in protest of university policies.
Here's a video showing some of it, with news voice-over:
The students call themselves "Take Back NYU."
There is a Facebook group called Support the NYU Occupation! (may require registration on Facebook)
Here's a report form NYU:
The NYU student occupation has ended - due to the disgusting NYU administration, who sent in security guards today to remove all of students occupying the Kimmel Center cafeteria. The administration never negotiatied with the students and when they said they would do so, they simply detained and suspended the four student negotiators who came out in good faith. (See below). Students were driven to their dorms and told to remove their belongings and were removed from their campus housing immediately and placed in 'temporary' housing. The students who were removed today are all facing suspension! Mass support is necessary to demand that these students be granted amnesty. Please get as many people to email NYU as possible and show that we will stand together with the students and not be turned back.
