San Francisco State Students Take Over Business School

Police Arrest Protesters at SF State

San Francisco

Police in riot gear arrested 33 protesters this morning
at San Francisco State University, a day after students
barricaded themselves inside the business school to
protest fee hikes and budget cuts at the state's public
universities.

Campus police clad in riot helmets, joined by officers
from throughout the Cal State University police system
and San Francisco police, entered the business
administration building at 3:15 a.m., said university
spokeswoman Ellen Griffin.

Some of the officers broke windows to access the
building.

University officials said 23 protesters who had
occupied the building were arrested on suspicion of
trespassing, a misdemeanor. Ten other demonstrators
outside the building were arrested on suspicion of
unlawful assembly and resisting arrest, also
misdemeanors, said university spokeswoman Ellen
Griffin.

A group of other protesters sat down and blocked
traffic on 19th Avenue near Holloway Avenue, just
outside the campus, in solidarity with the arrestees.
San Francisco police were in the process of citing and
releasing them.

The occupation follows building takeovers at UC
Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz last month, and a round-the-
clock student campout in an auditorium on the Berkeley
campus that began Monday and is expected to last
through Friday.

The San Francisco State protesters had said they were
prepared to occupy the three-story business school
building for days.

Early Wednesday, the building occupiers stacked chairs
against the doors, preventing 3,200 students from
taking scheduled classes, according to university
officials. The school said campus police were
monitoring the situation, but officers kept a low
profile, in contrast with UC police who clashed with
occupiers last month at Berkeley and Santa Cruz.

Faced with state budget cuts of more than half a
billion dollars, CSU trustees approved a 20 percent fee
hike in July, bringing annual tuition to $4,827. At a
time when applications to CSU are climbing, the
university system, which includes SF State, is limiting
enrollment, cutting employee pay through furloughs and
offering fewer courses.

Organizers say demonstrations and occupations will
continue, culminating in a statewide strike planned for
March 4 that will include high school students, parents
and teachers.
