UCI “unleashed”


UCI has often been referred to as the “leashed” and most apathetic UC student body, not anymore. Today UCI students joined in on the noise, meeting in front of the admin building at noon for a rally, and then marching around campus accumulating around 1,000 students at the peak of the protest.

The OC Register:
“About 15 helmet-clad campus police officers – with batons on their belts – stood between students and the entrance to the campus administration building as demonstration leaders rallied the cheering and shouting crowd.”
