Tue Nov 29 2011 (Updated 04/28/12)Students Occupy Hahn Student Services Building at UC Santa Cruz
Tue Nov 29 2011 (Updated 04/28/12)UC Santa Cruz Administration Building Occupied in Solidarity with UC Davis
After effectively shutting down and preventing employees from starting the workday at the Hahn Student Services building at UC Santa Cruz starting at 5am on November 28, students held a rally at Quarry Plaza at noon followed by a general assembly at 2pm. After discussion of agenda items, students reached consensus on holding the remainder of the GA at the Hahn building to support those who were still maintaining the shutdown. At Hahn, it was decided on that the building would be entered and occupied.
The occupation of the Hahn building began at about 4pm, and the general assembly was moved to the second floor balcony. Some students listened to the proceedings from inside the offices. While occupying the building, students utilized conference rooms for working group meetings, and the restrooms were briefly re-identified as "gender neutral." The general assembly was to be reconvened at 7pm so that students could break into specific working groups. The main office cubicle area was eventually transformed into a study area that students used as the evening's general assembly stretched late into the evening. By 11pm, and 4 hours into the resumed GA, students had reached consensus on how to proceed if the police arrived and asked them to leave the building. In addition, the group decided on the location of an encampment should they leave Hahn.
The day of actions at Hahn Student Services was held in solidarity with students who faced police brutality and repression of student free speech at UC Davis. Throughout the day, students maintained their three specific demands, that UC Davis Chancellor Katehi resign immediately, that all police be removed for UC campuses, and that fee hikes be eliminated.
