ASCMC Passes Resolution Calling for Revision of 7C Demonstration Policy

On Monday evening, the Associated Students of Claremont McKenna College (ASCMC) passed a resolution calling for the revision of the Claremont Colleges demonstration policy. The header summarizes the major points of the resolution:

On April 5, 2024, Pomona College’s administration called for the arrest of Claremont Colleges students as they exercised their right to free speech and assembly in support of divestment from ‘Israeli apartheid and weapons manufacturing.’ We condemn the escalation of violence on campus by Pomona College and the administration’s subsequent institutional retaliation due to their chilling impact on discourse, free speech, and the principles of Open Academy. We also reject the use of police due to their presence causing particular risk for Black, Indigenous, brown, Undocumented, and other students. In light of these findings, we call for the 7C Demonstration Policy and CMC FAQs to be revised to protect students’ right to protest and speech.

Of the 14 senators who voted, there were 11 votes in favor of the resolution and 3 in opposition. 

In the coming week, the resolution will be sent out to the CMC student body to vote on whether to support the resolution. The results of the vote will be transmitted to the Dean of Students Office, who will decide whether to take further action.
