Hold the anchovies … and fee hikes!

Day of Action Protest 9/22

You may or may not have heard, but today was a “Day of Action” on campus. Students were called to protest fee hikes by attending a noon rally on Sproul Plaza and then marching around campus to make sure that our collective student voice was heard.

But, like most Berkeley protests as of late, this one seems to be a bit of a dud. Turnout was low and student participation was murky at best. Though there were moments of action, we could hardly say that it was enough to merit the title of the day. For play-by-play coverage, check out the Daily Cal’s live blog [1], complete with photos that are easily worth more than a thousand words.

Last we heard was that a bunch of protesters were sitting in Tolman Hall and nomming on some pizza. Which is cool — we get it, pizza’s tasty — though we must say, it’s hard to take anyone seriously when they’ve got a mouthful of pepperoni.

Shit might get real if the protesters refuse to leave Tolman at 10 p.m. (when the Hall officially closes), but until then we’ll just have to just wait and see …
