Students Unite Against the UC Regents November 16th and 17th
UC Regents meeting at UC Berkeley
The U.C. Regents met at U.C. Berkeley's Clark Kerr Campus on Wednesday and Thursday, November 16th and 17th. Wednesday, the regents voted to raise student fees. On a 17-to-2 vote, they raised fees by 8 percent for undergraduates and 10 percent for graduate students. They also voted for top university administrators get pay raises; UC President Robert Dynes' base salary will increase from $395,000 to $405,000. The Regent's meeting agenda is here.
The regents switched the day to vote on feehikes, a day ahead of time to surprise the students and ignore their concerns. Activists from the civil rights group B.A.M.N (by any means neccesary), S.T.A.N.D (students taking action now Darfur ), U.C.S.A (University of California Student Association ), the G.R.N (Global resistance network), and hundreds of other students from all over California came to the U.C regents meeting to make an expression and demand for equal rights for all students. imc_photo.gif Photos: 1 | 2
