New York: CUNY students denounce police attacks

Hundreds of students from the City University of New York (CUNY) marched Monday from Madison Square Park to Baruch College in lower Manhattan to protest police violence that culminated in the arrest of 15 students last week. The march also opposed a proposed tuition hike of $300 for the colleges of the City University of New York.

The college cancelled classes held after 3:00 p.m., and the New York Police Department maintained a heavy presence at the demonstration. NYPD squad cars and vans were ubiquitous, and motorcycle police attempted to hem in the marchers. Police could be seen readying the orange netting used for kettling protesters. Over a dozen police were observed in full riot gear.
