Students protest across country over budget cuts, tuition spikes
From The Huffington Post
Students, professors, teachers and unions around the country will organize today to protest America’s imperiled system of education with more than 100 events in 32 states.
The movement started in California, where the public college system has been seized by tension and dissatisfaction over proposed tuition hikes, budget cuts and a series of racist events on University of California and California State campuses. Last Thursday, a riot erupted at UC Berkeley, allegedly to recapture the energy from last year’s protests at the campus and build momentum for today.
Some California demonstrators couldn’t wait for this day to come. Last night, a small dance party-turned-protest at San Francisco State University swelled to 200 people in three hours.
