Riot Squads Return, Police Shut Down UCSC Campus on Second Day of UAW Strike
by Alex Darocy
Graduate and undergraduate student demonstrators at UC Santa Cruz continued to face university intimidation during the second day of the UAW Unfair Labor Practices strike on April 3. During both days of the strike, riot police were outfitted and deployed at the west entrance of campus. Two individuals were arrested on April 3, which followed the 20 arrests that were made the previous day by University of California police. Additionally, the university continued to video tape legal strike activities. UAW Local 2865, the labor union that represents Graduate Student Workers and Teaching Assistants, said in a press release that the measures the university took were "simply an attempt to intimidate individuals involved in lawful conduct."
