New UC Irvine Protesters Swell Past 800; Students Stop Traffic on Campus Dr.
The Orange County Register is reporting that more than 800 students have taken part and have stopped traffic in areas around the campus. The article also states that marches entered one of UCI’s libraries and started shouting while other students tried to block an entry at a different library.
While Irvine has been at the center of multiple protests regarding free speech and Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren’s visit in February, today’s events appear to be more closely related to nation-wide protests in dozens of states regarding fee increases.
The students are currently in the ninth week of class with finals starting the week of March 15th.
