Thousands of students at Long Island University-Brooklyn walked out of classes at noon today in solidarity with their professors who have been locked out of teaching.
Students are not getting the education they deserve and professors are not being fully compensated. Meanwhile, students are paying for classes that are being taught by substitutes, including unqualified administrators. If LIU’s administration is successful, this will set a dangerous precedent for higher education institutions in America. That’s wrong.
Our campaign has said that instead of entering the workforce to be creative risk takers, today’s students have been shackled by crushing debt.
Ajamu Baraka and Jill Stein have advocated a plan to cancel student debt and make college tuition-free since before their Green Party nomination.
Call to action: Support the LIU-Brooklyn teachers now!
Please join the demonstration at the campus to show your support: Long Island University-Brooklyn, 1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, NY 11201
It’s in our hands!
