CCNY students arrested for protesting against military recruiters

Echoes of the '60s - a scuffle with protesters by Sheryl McCarthy also discusses this event. McCarthy asks, "whether the college was too heavy-handed in its treatment of students who are loudly critical of the government." The Socialist Worker Online quotes a member of the ISO (International Socialist Organization?) as saying, “The message being sent to students is clear--shut up and go to class. We should send them a very clear message: You messed with the wrong students. They want us to be silent. Now is the time to do the exact opposite. Now is the time to turn up the volume.”
