Statement of Solidarity: Prof. Hamid Dabashi

I write this note in complete solidarity with all the crucial points that the students on hunger strike have courageously raised and have indeed plagued our university under its current administration. I very much hope the university administration will meet with these students and address their concerns in an enduring and meaningful way.
