UC Berkeley Rally in Defense of Students Facing Suspension

University Comes Down Hard with Severe Sanctions for Protesters
On Monday, April 5th, dozens rallied at UC Berkeley to protest the university's crackdown on student protests. Over 100 students are facing possible suspension for participating in last semester's protests against budget cuts, furloughs, and tuition hikes -- among them, participants in last November's occupation of Wheeler Hall and last December's Open University.

Law student Daniela Urban called the suspensions an "unparalleled sanction" that sets a very aggressive standard for the university's response to student protest. She said, "If this is their jumping off point, what will students say to that? I've done nothing wrong and you haven't shown I've done anything wrong."

Students are also criticizing the university's code of conduct for violating their rights, including that of due process. University administrators say that the campus' disciplinary process is designed to be "educational" and "developmental." But critics say that the code fails to protect student rights while allowing for serious sanctions.
