We Wont Take No For an Answer!!

Produced by the Ad Hoc Committee, a left group of student and faculty activists, this flier advertises a rally at Queens College's A Building on April 16, 1969. A New York Times article from the following day reported that 150 students took control of four floors of the administrative building and blocked access to the president's office. The group, protesting the administration's treatment of student activists from earlier incidents in March and April, had previously occupied the Social Sciences Building at the start of the month and would continue demonstrations through graduation at the end of the semester.
