The Majority Coalition maintained a visual presence on campus throughout the last week of April. They recruited anti-demonstration students to form a human barrier around Low Library in order to prevent students sympathetic to the strike from bringing the Low occupants food and supplies, and they held their own counter protests calling for the abolition of SDS on campus. A number of tense but nonviolent student-to-student confrontations occurred between the Majority Coalition and the student protesters throughout the week.
While the Majority Coalition remained adamantly opposed to the actions of the student protestors, they were nonetheless the only organization involved in the strike to accept the Ad Hoc Faculty Group’s “Bitter Pill Resolutions,” a compromise proposal written up by the AHFG.
After the April 30 bust and the extension of the student strike, the Majority Coalition changed its name to Students for Columbia University in order to contrast themselves with the strikers who, they argued, wanted to destroy rather than rehabilitate the University.
