Dear President Yudof,

Kent State or current day Egypt. One of these is the path that you have chosen for protest at the University of California with your decision to do next to nothing. You must do better.

Non-violent protest/speech/assembly can never be met by violence, but violence has been the response of your university. UC Davis police made a false statement about why the students were attacked with chemical agents. Chancellor Katehi has made multiple false statements about the situation on her campus. You released a pathetic email yesterday.

Rectify the situation. Lt. Pike must be arrested. Chancellor Katehi must be fired. You must resign if you believe you have any dignity.

Occupy will prevail without regard to the path you choose. History will remember you by the path you choose.

Sincerely, A Peaceful Person

Violence against a person do nothing but sitting on the ground is never permitted. It is not lawful for the police to spray chemical agents on them, and it is not lawful for members of the public to attack them.

By the way, if you watched the videos of the students being attacked by the police, the students were not blocking the police and the police walked freely from side to side as they attacked the students.
