Entrances to UC Santa Cruz Cleared as Student Protest Continues

Thursday, 05 Mar 2015 10:35 PM

University of California, Santa Cruz officials say student protesters against tuition increases have cleared both entrances to campus. The protest is ongoing. 

The university says on its website that protesters are gathering on streets near the main gate Thursday evening.

The university issued an online alert earlier Thursday telling people not to come to campus because the protesters had blocked all access to campus.

On Tuesday, police arrested six protesters who shut down a highway for several hours by chaining themselves to bins filled with concrete placed in lanes.

The California Highway Patrol used jackhammers, saws and crowbars to unwind the tangle of chains and concrete. The suspects were arrested on suspicion of creating a public nuisance, failure to obey an officer and conspiracy.
