Tue Apr 13 2010 (Updated 04/15/10)SFSU: Eleven Students From Budget Cut Protests Face Fines of $744.25 Per Student
UPDATE 4/14: Two arrested in Cesar Chavez Student Center takeover.
On Wednesday, April 7th, dozens of protesters at SF State held a rally in defense of the 11 occupiers who have been charged with over $8000 in fees related to the occupation of the business building in December of last year. The administration is using political intimidation and repression to strike fear into the campus community, effectively making it so that anyone who stands up and fights back against the budget cuts and the privatization of the university.
A rally in defense of the occupiers had been planned, which started with a march through campus, leading up to the administration building, where the protesters marched inside up to the 5th floor, demanding to present letters to SF State President Robert Corrigan. Corrigan denied to be met with, as usual, and soon called the cops. The march went back down, where they would have an open sit-in of the lobby of the building. A police officer and an unidentified man in a suit stood in front of the doorway, claiming that the students weren't allowed in the building.
