July 2011 UC Regents Meeting Part 3: Students Speak Out

Skooter reporting 11/29/11

The University of California regents’ meeting was disrupted by student protesters as the university board requested for more state funds to preempt a tuition increase next year and to shore up its investigation of the recent pepper-spraying of students at UC Davis.

A meeting held at four campuses linked by teleconference, the regents got loads of criticism from students regarding the Nov. 18 incident where UC Davis police drenched nonviolent student protesters with chemical spray. Students also call on regents to encourage a campaign, prearranged mostly by unions, seeking tax changes to create more revenue for the state’s colleges and universities.

It was reported that there were no arrests or injuries at any of the four campuses. Authorities took less forceful actions than in previous years in dispersing protesters from regents’ meetings. The regents’ meeting was initially calendared to meet Nov. 16-17 in San Francisco but postponed it after police issued warning that protest could turn chaotic.
