BERKELEY — Protesting students at several University of California campuses clashed with police for a third-straight day Friday, angered by a UC Regents vote to raise tuition at all nine institutions by 32 percent.
At UC Berkeley, 40 student protesters were cited and released by authorities after staging a 14-hour occupation of Wheeler Hall that started at 5:30 a.m. The protesters barricaded themselves inside a second floor classroom and unfurled a banner decrying recent cuts to higher education funding and the tuition fee hike.
