Mass Unrest at UCLA Over 32% Student Fee Hike - Video 11/18/09

Here is video of mass unrest on the campus of UCLA yesterday over a proposed 32% hike in Student Fees.

Protesters amassed outside a University of California Regents meeting at Covel Commons. The Daily Bruin reports:

A crowd of more than 500 demonstrators rushed Covel Commons on Wednesday to protest a proposed 32 percent student fee increase. They were met by dozens of university police, some of whom were outfitted in riot gear. At one point, protesters broke through police barricades that surrounded the main entrance to Covel. Officers responded to the stampede of students and union workers by extending the metal barricades around the entrance and using nightsticks and Taser guns to force the crowd back.
Despite the unrest, the Board of Regents just passed the 32% Student Fee increase this afternoon.
