Join Demands For Boycott And Divestment From Israel.

As faculty at Cal Poly Humboldt, we deplore the use of physical violence by police and the deployment of extreme tactics to surveil students, escalate tensions, and criminalize free speech exercised by students calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.

Note: Students at California State Polytechnic University Humboldt (Cal Poly Humboldt) have been occupying a campus building since Monday, April 22 to protest the genocide in Gaza and university ties to Israel. They have already been brutalized by the police once, and a second police raid and extraction of student protesters occupying the building is feared imminent. Below is a letter that Cal Poly Humboldt Faculty have written in response to the police violence used against Humboldt students, and in support of the students’ demands.

To: The Cal Poly Humboldt community and Administrators
Tom Jackson, Jr., University President
Jenn Capps, Provost & Vice President, Academic Affairs
Chrissy Holliday, Vice President, Enrollment Management & Student Success
Frank Whitlatch, Executive Director & Secretary, Board of Directors, Cal Poly Humboldt Foundation

As faculty at Cal Poly Humboldt, we deplore the use of physical violence by university, local, and regional police officers and sheriffs and the deployment of other extreme tactics such as helicopters, to surveil students, escalate tensions, and criminalize free speech exercised by students calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. We also find unacceptable the attempt to shut down student voices by shutting down campus.

We call on all CPH administrators to reflect on the real harm that this crackdown on free speech inflicts and the message it sends to current and future students, their parents, faculty, and staff, and our communities within and beyond Humboldt. Brutalizing students who raise urgent protest according to their consciences is shameful. Our students are responding in earnest to our federal government’s support of genocidal violence against an oppressed Indigenous people–Palestinians living in Gaza, who are already refugees, the victims of previous ethnic cleansing. As the human rights organization Al-Haq reminds us, “The Palestinian struggle, as the struggles of all those oppressed, is a shared responsibility, transcending borders and backgrounds. The path to justice has been long, but it is a path we are unwaveringly committed to walking until the rights of the Palestinian people are realised.”

Cal Poly’s Office of the President’s “Resilience & Community” webpage highlights the “renowned intellectual Cornel West,” whose platform for U.S. president promises to “Protect free speech” and “Cease military funding to the State of Israel.” Dr. West spoke to Humboldt students during Black Liberation month 2020, and, according to Humboldt’s website, provided “just the kind of positive connection that can define a student’s college experience.” Dr. West has also spoken out in support of the student encampment for Gaza at Columbia, which inspired our students at Cal Poly Humboldt to launch their protest in solidarity and support for the same demands. Humboldt students see the connection between free speech, campus organizing, and transformative global change. Chants on the quad on the first night of the student sit-in, calling for “Justice for Josiah,” make clear that students connect state violence of police and prosecutor failures when responding to student David Josiah Lawson’s stabbing, and the oppressive tactics used by police in response to a student sit-in. The police helicopter circling for hours over Siemens Hall on April 22, 2024, was diverted from an urgent search and rescue operation, illustrating that criminalizing students puts more lives in jeopardy.

If, as the emergency message “Campus Closed, Siemens Hall Protest” on CPH’s webpage states, “The University is deeply concerned about the safety of the protestors who have barricaded themselves inside the building” then why were students and faculty battered and bloodied by campus police? Why is occupying a building on campus to express the urgency of refusing to be complicit in genocide being characterized as a form of violence in this “emergency” message? Campus and city police officers, acting at the behest of the highest levels of university administrators, responded to students sitting in a building and chanting by throwing students to the ground, violently arresting multiple people, clubbing at least one student in the head, and batoning a faculty witness in the stomach. It is disgraceful for campus administrators to care more about chairs and buildings than the safety of students and their demands for global justice by acting locally. This mindset puts students’ lives in jeopardy as they attempt to awaken us to the nightmarish realities that confront us. This is not the first time our university’s administration has sent police to suppress, rather than address, our students’ urgent demands for justice this semester. We urge this to be the last time police violence is deployed on our campus.

The decisions regarding campus closure and changes to teaching modalities have been made without consultation with the faculty, which undermines the principles of shared governance.

Such actions infringe upon our freedom of expression as educators and decision-makers within the academic community. It’s crucial to uphold these values to ensure transparency, collaboration, and respect for diverse perspectives.

The Humboldt Administration’s decision to lock campus buildings, immediately and without warning, led to students, who were studying for finals, to lose access to their belongings locked inside the library and to faculty, who were marking papers and preparing final exams, to have to scramble to try to access their locked offices. There have not been adequate alternatives provided even for access to bathrooms, which has led to concerning hygiene issues and safety risks. Administration must rectify these immediate barriers to student and faculty safety and reassess the decisions made regarding campus access to ensure the well-being and security of all members of the community.

As witnessed on scene and reported on police scanners, police scrambled WiFi signals on campus to inhibit communication, a disturbing and even dystopian tactic. We are also troubled by the use of campus resources last night to suppress student protest, including a non-police university maintenance truck used to remove the furniture at the front of the building and to kettle students at the entrance to Siemens. The truck became a militarized weapon in the hands of the police. It is troubling, but not surprising, to see police working with university administration to carry out some of the same technology surveillance and crowd repression tactics that the Israeli army and border police regularly use on Palestinians protesting. We heard our students last night speak to the visceral solidarity they felt with Palestinians as Humboldt students witnessed the level of militarized police violence on their campus in protection of property instead of lives and justice.

Our university’s purpose, proudly displayed on our website, unequivocally calls for us to “provide the highest quality and affordable college education built on the contributions of diverse students, staff, and faculty who are committed to a just and sustainable world.” Our students have taken this purpose to heart and are raising their voices in unison around the clock to say, no, this generation will not be complicit in genocide. CPH’s professed vision is to be “a campus for those who seek above all else to improve the global human condition and our relationship with the environment We will be a center for the interdisciplinary study of just global societies. We will approach our work with an equity mindset and continue to emphasize inclusion across multiple dimensions of our university, modeling what we want to see in the world We will partner with Indigenous communities to address the legacy of colonialism, and create space nurturing of traditional ecological knowledge (TEK), pedagogies, and curricula responsive to their identified needs.” By criminalizing resistance to crimes against humanity and student calls to end the violent “legacy” and ongoing injustice of settler colonialism in Palestine and on their campus, we are failing to embody our institution’s purpose and vision.

We reiterate and build upon the demands of those sitting in at Siemens Hall: full disclosure of CPH’s ties with Israel; an academic boycott to end institutional connections with Israeli universities including CSU study abroad in Israel; divestment from companies profiting from and upholding the occupation of Palestine; dropping charges against student organizers; and advocating for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and end to the occupation of Palestine. We also call for Cal Poly Humboldt Foundation’s providing greater transparency in where Humboldt’s endowment funds are invested, the exact nature of Cal Poly Humboldt Foundation’s investment pledge for sustainability and social responsibility, and an expanded pledge to divest Humboldt’s endowment from companies that support the Occupation of Palestine and the genocide in Gaza.
