Graduate Student Association Passes Resolution Supporting Walkout

Noting that the US military presence in Iraq continues to be unpopular in the US and in other countries, and that its humanitarian and economic consequences make it one of the central issues of the present day;

Also noting that a coalition of student organizations at Rutgers University have called for a student walkout on March 27th, 2008 to protest the occupation of Iraq, calling on students to leave their classes at 1:23 pm and gather at Vorhees Mall;

The Council of Graduate Student Association expresses its sentiment that a walkout is a valid form of protest, and its hope that the university administration, faculty, and other instructors will not prevent students from participating in the walkout or penalize them for participating.
