“No cuts, no fees, education must be free”
on October 7, 2010
Hundreds of UC Berkeley students, faculty and workers started chanting at noon during a rally in response to fee hikes, layoffs and furloughs. Early this morning, people were scattered around the campus, picketing and handing out flyers to students on their way to class. A noon rally will lead into a march and a sit-in until 5pm today.
