We Need Unity

Produced by the Ad Hoc Committee, a left-leaning student activist group at Queens College, this flier calls for a rally at the Dome on campus. Additionally, it calls for support at the Social Sciences (S.S.) Building. Just the day before this flier was created, 500 Queens students began a sit-in in the S.S. Building in protest of a faculty member's dismissal and the administration's treatment of student protestors from a March demonstration. By April 1, 39 would be arrested as police cleared out the S.S. Building at the college administration's behest.
