Baruch Shuts Down Access To CUNY Board Of Trustees Meeting

So much for democracy or public accountability:

Baruch College is postponing a number of afternoon classes tomorrow, ahead of a meeting of the City University of New York's board of trustees.

School officials say all classes in the Newman Vertical Campus that begin after 3:00 p.m. are being rescheduled to Friday.

Friday's classes will be rescheduled to a later date.

School officials say the move is being made to ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff, days after a protest over proposed tuition hikes during a prior board of trustees meeting led to more than a dozen arrests.

Student access will be limited to those completing a class already in progress, and people with an urgent need to be in the building.

In a statement, the school's president says Baruch is determined to avoid any repetition of last week's events.

How dare CUNY students protest the oligarchical order, tuition increases, aid decreases and overall income inequality that is exacerbated by some of the very people at the CUNY Board of Trustees meeting.

You'll take your austerity measures AND LIKE IT, BITCHES!
