And in California, a number of protests have been held this week at UC schools. African American students at UC San Diego led a walkout at a campus gathering held to discuss an off-campus party that mocked Black History Month. After the walkout, the students held a rally urging administrators to improve conditions and enrollment numbers for people of color. Meanwhile, at UC Irvine, seventeen people were arrested after holding a sit-in outside the office of the school’s chancellor. The protesters called for improved conditions for campus workers and increased aid to low-income and undocumented students. And at UC Berkeley, a group of students have reportedly occupied a campus building. The protest comes ahead of a statewide day of action next Thursday to protest budget cuts to education.
