"...Be assured, this is only the beginning"
"We have just occupied New School University. We liberate this space for ourselves, and all those who want to join us, for our general autonomous use. We take the university in explicit solidarity with those occupying the universities and streets in Greece, Italy, France and Spain."
A portion of The New School in New York City was occupied around 8pm tonight. Students at the school have a long list of grievances with their school's administration.
