Free Cooper Union invites you to participate in a special free education Halloween action, #LevitateCooperUnion: Exorcise Tuition.
Inspired by the anti-Vietnam War action led by Abbie Hoffman, “Levitate the Pentagon,” Free Cooper Union will begin a durational series of cleansing and purification rites to rid the college of tuition and raise it up in the spirit of the landmarked mission of “Free Education to All.” Amidst a climate of justifiable distrust in the administration and board of trustees, the Cooper Union community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni continue to organize against and refute the decision to charge tuition to incoming students beginning Fall 2014.
We invite you to join in the action:
5pm on October 31st, 2013
Foundation Building (outside)
7 East 7th Street
In the name of the amulets of touching, seeing, groping, hearing and loving, we call upon the powers of the cosmos to protect our ceremonies in the name of free education, in the name of Peter Cooper, in the name of all those fired because they do not comply, in the name of those students around the world indebted because of bad capitalism, in the name of the flowing living universe, in the name of the mouth of the river, we call upon the spirits to raise the Foundation Building from its destiny and preserve it.
