Demand that academic freedom as defined by the 1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure by the American Association of University Professors be protected on this campus at all cost to ensure open and critical dialogue.
Demand that the attack on Professor Robinsons academic freedom, one that ominously recalls similar campaigns against other critical academics across the nation, be publicly condemned.
Demand the immediate dismissal of all of the charges against Professor Robinson as frivolous, unfounded, and malicious. Any further consideration of these baseless attacks is unacceptable.
Join other students and faculty in pledging that we will not accept any resolution of this matter that is unfavorable to Professor Robinson and academic freedom.
Join other students and faculty in demanding that academic critique of states, governments, and political structures, including the state of Israel be protected as political speech.
