Despite being printed on official Queens College letterhead, this handout was created by student activists in the Ad Hoc Committee. The flier calls for support of the five demands put forth by the group to the school's administration. Those five demands, laid out in the beginning of April 1969, included the reinstatement of a dismissed professor and the dropping of charges against student protestors involved in incidents in the prior weeks, amongst other things. Printed during a student takeover of an administrative building, the handout was just one of many created during particularly turbulent weeks on campus in March and April 1969 with high tensions between students and administrative.
