(en) US, SDS* to Protest At PACE University TODAY, March 13, 2006

Date Mon, 13 Mar 2006 20:13:50 +0200


Pace University students to give the REAL State of the University
Who: Lauren Giaccone 917-597-3203 aftertherevolution@riseup.net
Brian Kelly 845-649-2146 kelly@leftist.ws
Why: On Monday, March 13th 2006 students from Pace University will give a press
conference on the steps of City Hall in Manhattan. This press conference
has been called in support for the two activists facing disciplinary
action following the disruption of President Bill Clinton’s speech on
Sunday, where they were harassed and interrogated by Secret Service and
police. The president of Pace University, David A. Caputo is scheduled to
give his annual State of the University address on Monday where he is
expected to tout the University’s progress. However, Pace students will
give the real State of the University: a $3.2 million deficit, suppression
of dissent and union busting activities. Several speakers are slated for
the press conference, including the two students facing expulsion: Lauren
Giaccone and Brian Kelly.


The press conference has been called by the Pace chapters of Students for
a Democratic Society (SDS) and Campus Antiwar Network (CAN) and has been
endorsed by various organizations and groups.

Following the press conference, there will be a protest in front of Pace
University at 2PM. Various groups will be on hand including SDS, CAN, IWW,
NYMAA, the War Resisters League, students from NYU, Pratt, Columbia, New
School and many others.

These groups and others including Cindy Sheehan and Camillo Mejia have
expressed support for the students and their desire to see the charges
dropped.

Lauren Giaccone and Brian Kelly are demanding that Pace University drop
its charges against them, recognize the Pace chapter of SDS as well as
rescind their unconstitutional policies that impede free speech on campus.
The students also demand that Pace University cease its practice of union
busting.
