CUNY, NYPD Provoke Violence Among Peaceful Student Protesters

CUNY Attacks Tuition Hike Protest

Under the caption of, "Police loving violence against the students and citizens," AnonOps Communications blog posted this observations about how private CUNY security and NYPD are increasingly using violence against peaceful protesters :

Occupy Cuny and allied protestors who gathered Monday at Baruch College to express opposition to CUNY tuition hikes, unfair labor practices, and privatization were met with an increasingly familiar response: violent suppression of their basic right to dissent. Protestors were barred from attending a so-called "public" meeting of the school's trustees and ordered to disperse. CUNY security and NYPD moved in with nightsticks drawn, turning a nonviolent protest into a chaotic melee.
