Wed Nov 18 2009 (Updated 11/19/09) UC Students Protest As UC Regents Raise Undergraduate Fees 32%
Hundreds Demonstrate at UC Santa Cruz Against 32% Fee Hikes On November 18th, hundreds of students rallied at the two entrances to the UC Santa Cruz campus, shutting them down for several hours. The demonstration was in conjunction with statewide actions against a 32% increase in undergraduate student fees, effective fall 2010, which was approved the same day at UCLA by the Committee on Finance of the UC Board of Regents.

A group of approximately 300 students entered the Kresge Town Hall at UCSC to create an organizing space around the budget cuts. Students at the entrances eventually joined the others in the Kresge Town Hall to plan further actions.
