Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee (RSCC) was founded in February 2012 as an organization uniting revolutionary-minded youth and students throughout the CUNY system in NYC. It is politically united based on its Points of Unity, works for the attainment in CUNY of its Platform, and operates according to its Constitution.[1]

Freedom Road Socialist Organization connection

According to Marxist commentator Louis Proyect;[2]

In New York, Freedom Road... mostly works through a front group called the Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee (RSCC).

In the beginning Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee worked closely with IGNITE, the Maoist collective of Freedom Road Socialist Organization.

Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee was formed by members of IGNITE along with other comrades throughout the NYC area. RSCC is a political formation that does work primarily around the issue of white supremacist imperialist control of the educational system, and how that serves to disarm black and brown working class people people politically by erasing and distorting our peoples’ histories. Currently the majority of the public school system offered to kids in the hood serves the purpose of day-prisons for kids and teens. We must struggle to take control of the schools and transform them from mechanisms of oppressive social conditioning into factories of liberation.
Ideology is a weapon, liberate the schools![3]

CUNY Board of Trustees protest

Alice Feng organized a Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee protest at East 25th Street Monday 25 June 2012, 15:30 till Monday 25 June 2012, 15:30

NEW YORK CITY – CUNY students call for a protest picket on the afternoon of Monday, June 25 outside the regular meeting of the CUNY Board of Trustees, when the Board will give massive pay raises to CUNY administrators, including a quarter-million dollar pay raise (54%) to Chancellor Goldstein.
CUNY is denying admission to more and more Black and Latino students based on its so-called rising "academic standards," while Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business was recently caught fixing the grades of failing students who work for Wall Street firms. CUNY uses one set of "academic standards" to deny admission to working-class Black and Latino students and fudges another set of "academic standards" for Wall Street executives whose tuition is paid for by their firms. Despite these twin scandals, the paper-pushing non-producing parasites on the Board are planning to congratulate administrators with outrageous salary increases on June 25.
Join the Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee on June 25 to protest against these outrages!

"RSCC Study: The CUNY Student Struggle, Then and Now"

Columbia University - Intercultural Resource Center (552 W 114st st by Broadway) Sunday 1 December 2013, organized by Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee.

The Fall 2013 semester has seen the revival of militant student movements in CUNY. Our movements are following in the footsteps of those who struggled in CUNY before us, in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. The struggles of the past opened up CUNY to oppressed people, but that is not the end of the story, it was only the first step. The struggle of our generation is going to be to seize CUNY for the people.
In order to do that we must study the past. RSCC is taking up this task by hosting a study on the history of revolutionary student movements in CUNY, to enrich our struggles going forward. Come out and learn with us, as we build towards a CUNY Spring!

Those indicating their intention to attend on the Wherevent website notice of the event included Amity Magid Paye, Ayisha Irfan, Yexenia Vanegas, Shaira Chaer, Hoda Mitwally, Emily December, Emily Wynter , Stephanie Zukasaka, Sherry Cruz, Natalie Wells, Jenny Marks, Angelica Hernandez, Analisa Svehaug, Marcia Esparza, Marisa Jalo, Gargi Padki, Aber Kawas, Maha Chielo, Narish Singh, Erick Moreno, Rey Valentin, Carlos A.

"Morales / Shakur Center" student suspensions event

On October 28, 2013, a City College administrator suspended Tafadar Sourov and Khalil Vasquez, two students who led demonstrations against the administration’s illegal raid and seizure of the Guillermo Morales / Assata Shakur Community Center. The Morales / Shakur Center is a space that has existed at City College for more than 20 years and was first won in 1989 through a mass student strike and occupations throughout CUNY.

On November 8, Taffy and Khalil will come before the faculty-student disciplinary committee for the first time. The City College administration, and the ruling class they serve, is attempting to squash political dissent on campus by targeting two of the most prominent and uncompromising organizers in today’s CUNY movement.

Taffy and Khalil are members of the Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee. In addition, Taffy is the secretary of CCNY Students for Justice in Palestine. Khalil is also a former leader of the CCNY Black Student Union.

Victory Fund Promotional Video
In response to the attacks on our student leaders, students and community say: WE ARE NOT AFRAID. Repression will not end the campaign to save the Morales / Shakur Center or the broader struggle to liberate CUNY for the people. Hundreds on campus and in the community will follow their example. Any punitive measures against Taffy and Khalil will only be a lesson to the people that the CCNY administration dismisses the people’s concerns and that the people must escalate their mass actions.
Taffy and Khalil are fighting for the people, defending the last autonomous campus space that serves the community and defending the legacy of the people’s revolutionary heroes. THE PEOPLE MUST DEFEND TAFFY AND KHALIL. The people cannot stand aside and look as the City College administration attempts to isolate them and promote fake sellout student leaders who want to negotiate away the Center. The Center was won through struggle and will be reclaimed through struggle.

Six demonstrators were arraigned Wednesday September 18, 2013 in Manhattan Criminal Court after a protest against ex-C.I.A. chief David Petraeus at the City University of New York got ugly.

About 75 people were marching on the sidewalk outside of Macaulay Honors College at 35 W. 67th St. on Tuesday when a fight broke out with cops, according to the criminal complaint.

Jose Disla, 25; Augustin Castro, 23; Denise Ford, 24; Angelica Hernandez, 18; and Rafael Pena, 24; were charged with obstruction of governmental administration, riot, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

But attorney Lamis Deek said the group had been peaceful.

CUNY student Luis Henriquez, 25 claims he was struck by cops while protesting.[8]
