UCSD students organized a walkout on the first day of classes, September 24, to protest tuition hikes, pay cuts and furloughs, administration pay raises and privatization of the UC. Over 1000 students, workers, and a few faculty marched from the Gilman parking structure to library walk past the frat and sorority recruitment booths to the Giesel Library, Peterson Hall, the Chancellor's complex and Center Hall. The protesters called for students in Peterson and Center to walk out. Attempts to gather at the Chancellor's office were thwarted by UCSD cops, who were videoing protesters, in violation of their rights to free speech and association. Video: 11 min 14 sec 58 mbytes.
