Add comment on:Weeping Wednesday: A Protest Against the UC Regents
The first big protests of the 2006-2007 school year at UC Santa Cruz took place on October 18th, 2006, the day the UC Regents came to visit campus. It had been five years since all 26 UC Regents came to UCSC. During the second demonstration of the day by hundreds of students outside the new Humanities Building at Cowell College, police pushed, swung and jabbed with their batons before taking three students hostage and hurling streams of pepper spray directly into the eyes of demonstrators.
