Ad Hoc Committee Statement of Demands
The activist student group's principal motivation, as expressed in the first two of their four demands, was in support of three suspended students from the college facing criminal charges for driving out a General Electric recruiter on March 11th. Additionally, they sought the rehiring of a dismissed English instructor and the abolishment of a recently issued CUNY-wide report governing faculty firings. Though the Queens College administration would reinstate the suspended students, the college's president, Joseph P. McMurray, adamantly refused to dropped charges. Consequently, student protests continued into May.
