Hello everyone, below you will find video from Monday's arrests at Tent University Santa Cruz. Hopefully this imagery will allow you to see the pain and violence that both the university and the police are willing to inflict upon the peaceful, non-violent, participants. If you don't know what TUSC is about, read the bottom of this page. This video was shot by Martin Shulman and edited into this rough state with the priority that getting it out there for people to see is the most important thing. I hope that you come and support us as we fight to express ourselves in an open, non-violent community of students, faculty, staff, and Santa Cruz citizens. The actions taken last night by the administration should not be allowed to go on without consequence and honest dialogue. Thank you and thanks to those who continue the struggle. We, the people, have the power.
Apparently, they camped out at the base of the University from 9am until after curfew. The UC and police told them to leave and they refused. Eventually, the UC told the cops to let them camp. Still crazy though. Gotta love their Vulcan death grips.
