NEW YORK, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- A group of students at the City University of New York have filed suit to keep the names of two radicals now living in Cuba on a student center.
Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, fled to Cuba after her 1979 escape from a New Jersey prison where she was serving a sentence for a shootout that left a state trooper dead. Guillermo Morales was a member of a violent Puerto Rican independence group.
City College said the names of the two would be stripped from a campus building after the Daily News ran a story in December. The students involved in the lawsuit say that is "blatant viewpoint-based censorship."
