SANTA CRUZ, CA – Both entrances to the UC Santa Cruz campus have been blocked by protesters, causing traffic delays for those both entering and leaving the campus.
The protests are in response to a student fee increase being voted on by the UC Regents today and tomorrow. Should the measure pass tomorrow, student fees would rise 15% effective Winter Quarter 2010.
Persons traveling to and from campus should expect delays. Updated information will be available at http://www.ucsc.edu/news_events/text.asp?pid=3383 and on cityonahillpress.com as this story develops.
