Video: Occupy Education Protesters “OCCUPY” the California State Capitol

Share

 

Consider the California Capitol OCCUPIED.

A late morning march and rally to call attention to cuts to higher education has transformed into an effort to “Occupy” the state Capitol.  Several hundred demonstrators are gathered in the rotunda and hallways of the Capitol as they sort out what demands they plan to seek as part of their protest.  ReFund California, a coalition backing a proposed tax hike on Californians making more than $1 million to fund education and other state services, had previously announced plans to Occupy the Capitol following a rally sponsored by the Student Senate for California Community Colleges, California State Student Association and the University of California Student Association.

Bring in the Capitol Police at 6 PM in about an hour, and throw them out.

End of Occupy California State Capitol…
