At 12:15 pm there was a tuition rally on the sidewalk of Bedford Avenue gates going to the entrance of the West Quad. There were about  2 dozen protesters and several were from the teacher’s union who just days prior protested for a raise. There were a dozen or 2 of spectators who stopped passing by on Club Hours on their route to another building. It had a light rain which hurt the rally numbers. The group went to the Boylan Cafeteria and then outside the college president’s office. The organizers belonged to several clubs. It was not well publicized. I did not recognize any student government  members or club members. There were no leaflets. It would have gotten more exposure if they had a permit and on the Quad to get the students passing from the library and cafeteria.   At 5 pm there will be a NYC wide rally at Hunter College on the upper east side of Manhattan. Fox 5 Television reporter filmed live at the scene.
