"Open Letter to the Students and Faculty (Please Read Carefully)"

This is an open letter to Queens College students and faculty from the Ad Hoc Committee, a politically active group comprised of concerned faculty and student activists. The group, which held a multi-day sit-in in the Social Sciences Building in March/April 1969, was protesting the administration's dismissal of an instructor and their treatment of student protestors from an incident in March. Their demands totaled five in all and they hoped to garner more popular support on campus by holding the rally advertised on this letter.
