THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW (Occupy Cuny)
(by Iva Radivojevic & Martyna Starosta)
“In 1969, a group of black and Puerto Rican students occupied City College demanding the integration of CUNY, which at the time had an overwhelmingly white student body. The occupation spread to other CUNY campuses, forcing the Board of Trustees to implement a ground-breaking new admissions policy.”
Such occupations also occurred in the 1980s and 2000s. It’s that time again.
