All charges dismissed against students arrested on November 21, 2011 at Board of Trustees Hearing at Baruch College

Five CUNY students still facing charges associated with the N21 protests at Baruch appeared before a judge this morning. The students were blocked from attending the Board of Trustees public hearing and faced charges ranging from disorderly conduct to trespass. A press conference conference condemning the actions of CUNY security and NYPD was held at 9am in front of the New York City criminal court at 100 Centre St.

The Knight News, Queens College’s student newspaper, and Occupy CUNY GC had live coverage of the morning:
