"Political Suppression - You Can't Sit on This One...Strike!"

Created by the Ad Hoc Committee, a left-wing group comprised of student and faculty activists, this handout advertises an April 22, 1969 protest against the Queens College administration. The flier provides a brief summation of the group's most recent activity and lays out their demands which provided the justification for their protest efforts. From March onward, consistent student unrest on campus came to define Queens College's spring 1969 semester.
