Alumni Petition for Free Expression on Campus

This June 1933 petition was created by the City College Alumni Committee on Academic Freedom in protest of the college's treatment of students following a May 29th rally.

The student-organized anti-war/anti-ROTC rally met resistance from the college administration who called upon the police to "disperse student" activity. In the petition, the Alumni Committee criticizes this police presence and bemoans the suspension of students, suppression of clubs and campus publications, as well as other college efforts to limit free expression on campus.
