ANNOUNCING:

CITY HALL PRESS CONFERENCE/RALLY

REMOVE CHARLES BARRON
AS HIGHER EDUCATION COMMITTEE CHAIR!

MONDAY, DEC. 14, 10:30 AM

NOTE TIME CHANGE to 10:00 AM

NEW YORK CITY HALL STEPS

For All concerned

New Yorkers

Stand up with us for decency and civility

in New York City government!

New York City Councilman Charles Barron has a long history of obnoxious, racist and anti-Semitic behavior, and has no business being chairman of the Council’s Higher Education Committee.  Last week’s incident was the last straw, when Councilman Barron hijacked the solemn 9/11 groundbreaking ceremony for CUNY’s Fiterman Hall destroyed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Under the rules of the New York City Council for disorderly behavior, we call on Council Speaker Christine Quinn to remove Councilman Barron as chairman of the Higher Education Committee.

Councilman Barron has gotten away with bigoted thug politics for too long:

  • His first day as Councilman was spent petitioning to remove a painting of Thomas Jefferson from City Hall and replace it with one of Malcolm X. He also criticized the Council’s statue of Thomas Jefferson as representing a “white, slave-owning pedophile.”
  • Made a speech about slapping white people for his mental health.
  • Denounced the New York Police Department as enemies of the black community and criticized black police officers as “House Negroes.”
  • Defended his chief of staff, Viola Plummer, who called for the assassination of Councilman Leroy Comrie for not voting for the street renaming for the late radical black activist and criminal Sonny Carson. Speaker Quinn fired Ms. Plummer after she refused to sign a pledge promising to conduct herself appropriately.
  • Barron does not salute the flag or recite the Pledge of Allegiance, saying the entire pledge is “a lie”
  • He criticized the City University of New York for racism in increasing admission standard in order to exclude minority students, when in fact more black and minority students graduated due to higher academic standards.
  • Barron proposed Council resolution seeking clemency for cop killer Herman Bell.
  • Barron hosted and lavished praise on the brutal Zimbabwean despot Robert Mugabe at City Hall in 2002 after his campaign of horrific violence killing thousands. Barron called Zimbabwe “one of the most stable countries in Africa.”
  • Barron, a former Black Panther, spoke at a Viva Palestina rally declaring: “I am not a politician. I am an elected revolutionary” and led a convoy to Gaza at taxpayer expense delivering financial and moral support to terrorist group, Hamas and advocating the destruction of the State of Israel.
  • Charles Barron is the wrong man for the Council’s prestigious Higher Education chair, which sends the wrong message to the academic community and sets a disgraceful example for our kids. Speaker Quinn, do the right thing and strip him of his chair. We demand competent leadership in the Council committees.

New Yorkers deserve better for our City Council committees and for our Higher Educational leadership. Join us in a united front to preserve civility in our city government and to end the divisive, race-baiting politics of Charles Barron!
