CounterRecruiter.net has learned that the New York police have arrested three counter-military recruiters earlier today at City College. Felony charges were filed against two of the students.
Nick Bergreen, Justino Rodriguez and Hadas Thier, all undergraduate students at the City College of New York, were arrested today during a protest at the school. Bergreen and Rodriguez have been charged with felony assault; Thier was charged with obstruction of a government administrator.
According to a press release from supporters of the City College Three, “Hadas Thier, Nick Bergreen, and Justino Rodriguez, along with approximately a dozen other protesters attended a job fair organized by the college, and stood up in front of a National Guard recruitment table chanting anti-war slogans. Private security and campus peace officers immediately surrounded the protesters, pushed them into an empty hallway outside of the job fair, closed the hall door and assaulted two protesters and arrested a third who was taking pictures. The two students who were assaulted are now being charged with felony assault, and the third with obstruction of a government administrator.”
A press conference is scheduled for Thursday, March 10, at 100 Centre Street in Manhattan at 4 p.m. The three arrested students are scheduled to attend pending their release.
