BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Passions raged as CUNY funding and tuition were the targets of a rally and subsequent state Senate committee hearing on higher education on Thursday Oct. 23.

Around 50 protesters rallied outside of the main gate of the East Quad at Brooklyn College, chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, tuition hikes have got to go,” and “faculty, students, and staff unite. Same struggle, same fight.”
