Created by the Ad Hoc Committee, a left group of student and faculty activists, this flier promotes a campus forum during Queens College's free hour on April 21, 1969. The group, protesting the administration's treatment of student and faculty activists from earlier incidents in March and April, sought to gain further popular support through the explanation of their motivations and positions. The organization's most notable effort thus far had been the organization of a six day sit-in in the Social Sciences building that culminated on April 1st with the arrest of 39. Such did not deter them, however, as their efforts continued through the end of the semester.
