Bringing CUNY into the US War Machine -- Students and Faculty Rise Up

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 04 July 2014

A World Can't Wait Panel at the Left Forum, June 1, 2014  CUNY has restored ROTC on a number of campuses after it was driven out by protest 40 years ago. General David Petraeus, architect of the "surge" in Iraq, one-time CENTCOM and CIA Director, is teaching at Macaulay Honors College. The US military is shifting recruiting to diverse urban campuses like CUNY, saying that in 15 years it needs officers who "reflect the geographic and demographic diversity of the country." What is the challenge for those who want to stop unjust wars? How did students and professors at Rutgers University, a NJ state institution, force the withdrawal of Condoleezza Rice as commencement speaker?
