The President and administration of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute continue to attack the student run nature of the RPI Student Union and the free speech rights of the students and faculty.

We firmly believe that the nature of the Student Union, its associated charter, by-laws, and inclusion as a student governed organization with full rights of self determination should remain unchanged, as they have for the past 125 years.

Furthermore, the abridgment of student free speech rights in the form of: a) the denial of the right to stage an orderly, non violent protest and b) the removal, without prior notification, of the right of students to put up protesting posters within existing regulations are both simply wrong.

Therefore, until such time as these rights are restored, the self determination of the Student Union is assured, and policies are put in place to assure these rights will remain unabridged in the future, we, the undersigned, will be withholding all financial and material support to Rensselaer.
