To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
CRIMSON photographers present at the various employee meetings took pictures of speakers and individuals in the audience. When asked to stop the photographers answered that the CRIMSON would not print any such pictures. However, these pictures appeared on the front pages of the May 6th and May 12th editions of the CRIMSON. Employees did not wish photographers to be present because of possible harassment and reprisals on the part of the Harvard Administration. Many employees will not come to meetings at all because they know what Harvard has done in the past to employees who try to organize. The CRIMSON's role in this situation is to side with the Administration against the campus workers. By printing such pictures, the CRIMSON has increased employee intimidation and has helped provide evidence against certain employees.
[The CRIMSON believed that no employees were identifiable in the photographs published except for one woman, who had signed strike literature. The CRIMSON has no desire to aid intimidation of striking workers, and we do not believe we have. No further photographs of striking workers will be published.
