Sigal was a CUNY student activist from 1996-2000. He was a member of Student Liberation Action Movement, editor of the CCNY Messenger newspaper and a member of the CCNY Graduate Student Council. He was also a member of the Love and Rage Anarchist Federation, which later dissolved in Freedom Road.
- A group of us in Love @ Rage were transformed by our work in the CUNY movement. Out of our experiences we gained an appreciation for Mao’s writings on the mass line, and for some of the foundations of Marxism like dialectical and historical materialism, that helped us make sense of what we were experiencing and give us practical guidance in building the mass movement.
