UC Riverside Regents: "You're fired!"

Posted 6 years ago on Jan. 19, 2012, 6:51 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

UC Riverside Brings in sheriffs with riot gear. (Cropped)

Occupy LA vists UC Riverside, previous coverage:

[...] Riot cops w/ pepper ball guns massing to "guard" the regents from a nonviolent, peaceful protests of students. The same students that the regents at UC-Riverside are supposed to be representing[...]

They've declared it an unlawful assembly twice now, but have since tried to fictionalize the narrative w/ "Stop advancing on the officers" -- Students ARE NOT ADVANCING, just demanding free education and the regents to open up their meeting. Private regents meeting is actually against the law.

Lots of OLA'ers in the protest of about 500.

The cops were not happy with no arrests at the action earlier in the day, and have used rubber bullets on peaceful students, and community members (as reported by PMBeers).
