City College of New York Students Protest Closure of Campus Activist Center

New York, October 26 (RHC)-- Two people were arrested at the City College of New York on Thursday in a protest against the closing of a hub for student activism.

The Guillermo Morales/Assata Shakur Student and Community Center was abruptly shut down last weekend after school officials said they needed the space to expand the campus career services office.

Student activists say they believe the center was targeted in retaliation for the recent protests against the hiring of former CIA director and military general David Petraeus to teach a course. The chair of the Morales-Shakur Center, Shepard McDaniel, said student activists are being silenced.
