Poster appearence recalls 2015 on-campus incident

This is not the first time that Cleveland State has had an issue regarding hateful messages on campus.

During a press briefing following the forum, a reporter from Cleveland Magazine, Abby Burton, asked Berkman about an incident that happened back in 2015 where a swastika was found in one of the university bathrooms. At the time Berkman was quoted in a publication as saying this was considered a “hate crime.”

“The fundamental difference was--the police regarded that as trespassing and destruction of state property,” Berkman answered.

A rally on Thursday, Oct. 19 in response to the fliers, started at 11:30 a.m. in the courtyard and led to a group of protesters marching up to Berkman’s office to request a meeting with him. After the protest, plans developed to arrange future meetings with the president and his office.

“Student voices being made visible and heard in these discussions is paramount to them,” said Queer Student Alliance. “I’m looking forward to seeing the administration follow through on the promises they have made.”
