GSS Statement on Campus Arrests on May 7th, 2024

Dear Fellow Graduate Students,

We are writing to address the deeply concerning events that have recently taken place on our campus.  The deployment of police forces against peaceful student protesters, resulting in the arrest of over 130 individuals, was deeply troubling and disheartening to witness. We stand in solidarity with our students, faculty, and staff who have been affected by these actions, and condemn, in the strongest sense, the overwhelming police intervention present on May 7th.
