On Thursday, November 19th, the Regents of the University of California approved a 32% increase in undergraduate fees. As part of the ongoing local and global protests against the privatization of education, Kerr Hall at UC Santa Cruz, which contains the offices of the administration, vice-chancellors, and chancellors, was occupied by hundreds of students. The students created a list of demands which was read and given to UCSC's Executive Vice Chancellor David Kliger and Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Felicia McGinty. The first three demands are to, "Repeal the 32% fee increase; Stop all current construction on campus; and UC funds and budget are made transparent."
