RSCC and its allies, under the banner of the Ad Hoc Committee Against the Militarization of CUNY, are calling on all students and faculty of CUNY and members of our communities to protest retired general and ex-CIA director David Petraeus’s class on Monday, September 9th. More info in this leaflet.
We are not fooled by American “benevolence” abroad. Nor are we fooled by it domestically, in our classrooms.
As the US is preparing to declare war on the peoples of Syria, we must take to task what can be done here on our campuses to fight against imperialism. We must condemn the atrocities that David Petraeus committed against people all over the world. We must expose Petraeus for what he is in the eyes of people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, and many more countries. People like Petraeus and institutions such as the US military offer nothing but death squads, torture, and drone attacks. Petraeus has no place teaching in CUNY!
