An Open Letter

To: Sen. Gillibrand, Sen. Schumer, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez

From: A constituent in Astoria, NY

April 29

Hello, I’m writing today with a simple request: that you issue official statements that support the right of campus protesters to peacefully protest. University administrations, like Columbia, are now threatening students with suspensions on top of trying to throw gas on the fire by welcoming the police. However complicated and nuanced our own feelings on the Gaza humanitarian crisis might be, we all need to acknowledge that student protest can be a vital teacher, and afford time and space for it despite how inconvenient it may feel.
