URGENT: The New School in Exile

December 19, 2008 at 1:25 am Leave a comment

The New School in New York City is being occupied by over 100 students, demanding the resignation of their principal Bob Kerrey – former governor of and senator from Nebraska – who was an early supporter of the Iraq War. The students, those occupying the building and their supporters outside, are also calling for the resignation of the school’s Treasure, who is tied to Abu Gharib prison. This is following an overwhelming vote from the faculty of no confidence in the president and vice president of the University. Earlier today, the police attacked the school but the students resisted. I’ll keep it brisk here so you can follow the links below for more details and spread the word:
