Students storm UC San Diego chancellor’s office (editor’s note: “storm” is an exaggeration. The students peacefully and respectfully occupied...)
KPBS TV Coverage of Recent Events
In solidarity with the UCSD folks, students sat in at Murphy Hall at UCLA waiting to meet with the chancellor there and issue him the following demands: 1) Closure of UCSD until there is a full investigation of events surrounding Compton Cook Out and the noose left hanging for 3 days in Library, 2) Expulsion of offending students and dismantling of The Koala newspaper, and 3) Diversity needs be met by March 4th.
Also, it seems that UCSD is not the only campus in racial turmoil. Here’s a note and a photo from one of my colleagues: “attached image is of an event at UC Riverside, which further speaks to the current situation.”
Things are also blowing up at UC Davis.
