3/7: Film Screening and Dialogue: Carré Rouge Sur Fond Noir / Red Square on the Blackboard
Tuesday, March 7, 6-9pm
CUNY Graduate Center 365 Fifth Ave,
Skylight Room (9th floor)
One the eve of the March 8 International Women’s Strike and education strike/walkout actions from Puerto Rico to NYC, the new coalition Free CUNY will screen the film “Carré Rouge Sur Fond Noir / Red Square on the Blackboard.” We will be joined by veterans of the 2012 Quebec Student Strike who started a movement of over 400,000 students that defeated a proposed 78% tuition hike in Canada. After screening the documentary, we will discuss how similar success can be won here in New York City. This event is free, but seating is limited, so arrive early!
Free CUNY – a new cross-campus coalition of undergraduates, graduate students, adjuncts, staff, and alumni – is launching a long-term campaign to create a completely tuition-free CUNY with social justice-centered curriculum, Open Admissions, student stipends, equal pay for equal teaching work, and beyond. www.free-cuny.org + firstname.lastname@example.org
This event is co-hosted with the Center for Place, Culture, and Politics at the CUNY Graduate Center.
