I hope you’ve been able to get out and enjoy the warm, clear days we’ve had recently. Apparently the rain returns tomorrow….
The Berkeley Graduate extends hearty congratulations to all of the 2010 graduates. And to those who will be here a little while longer, we wish you a summer that is either productive or restful or both.
Student protesters barricaded themselves inside Wheeler Hall at 6 am this morning. They have been joined by an energetic group of supporters who are rallying outside the building. Those inside and outside Wheeler are united in opposition to the fee hikes approved yesterday and in their concern for the future of public education in California. While UC Police have cordoned off the building and are attempting to break in, as of this writing, the students remain in control of Wheeler and are still inside.
At several UC campuses, students, faculty, and staff are protesting the proposed 32% student fee increases. Tomorrow the UC regents are expected to vote to raise the price of an undergraduate education at a UC school to $10,302 per year. On Berkeley’s campus, the main event today was a noontime rally on Sproul Plaza. Demonstrations and educational activities will continue Thursday and Friday.
