From Corey Robin:
Dear friends and colleagues,
I know you’re all being inundated with petitions these days, but this one seems especially worthy of your attention. It’s addressed to all chancellors and presidents of American universities and colleges, asking that they ensure that their campuses are and remain “safe protest zones,” protected from the intimidation and violence of the police. It’s a sign of our times that we must petition for something like this, but there we are. I’ve signed the petition, as have Jonathan Lethem, Bruce Ackerman, Todd Gitlin, Etienne Balibar, Wendy Brown, Kaja Silverman, and Craig Calhoun. I ask that you do the same.
If you wish to sign the petition, please DO NOT email me; email Matt Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org), who is cc’d on this, and give him your name and affiliation. There is already interest in this letter from the Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, and The Huffington Post.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
