On Tuesday, September 17, 2013, the New York Police Department arrested six people, including four CUNY students, in an unprovoked police attack against a peaceful protest by students and faculty against CUNY's appointment of former CIA chief General David Petraeus. CUNY students were punched, slammed against vehicles and against the pavement by NYPD officers. On Thursday, September 19 the Delegate Assembly unanimously passed a resolution opposing police violence against peaceful protesters and affirming the right of faculty, staff and students to engage in peaceful protest free from fear of a violent police response.
