As we’ve noted before, the New School In Exile, a student activist group at New York City’s New School university, has pledged to shut the school down on April 1 if university president Bob Kerrey doesn’t resign. With that deadline now just five days away and Kerrey still ensconced in the president’s office, NSIE is preparing for a showdown.

The group has held several events this week, including a co-sponsored student-faculty forum at NYU, a staged reading of a short satirical play about Kerrey (now online), and a party late yesterday night.

They’ve scheduled a “student gathering and planning meeting” for six o’clock Sunday evening, though they’re tight-lipped about just what it is that’s being planned — their calendar for next Wednesday reads as follows: “[insert your action here], lots of fun, anarchy and playfulness. Don’t miss it.”
