Life: Video Footage Of The UCLA Fee Hike Demonstration
Ahh, I remember my demonstration days fondly. I've been on the front line of two celebrations/demonstrations-turned-riots very similar to this. Both ended with people all around me being beaten with batons and shot with rubber bullets by none other than the LAPD. I can assure you that the mob mentality is no joke. The LAPD will win every time, people. I've definitely learned my lesson and choose to stick with peaceful protests from here on out. Personal reflection aside, I can't believe a THIRTY TWO PERCENT fee hike was approved by the UC Regents. It will be interesting to see how this effects future enrollment.
