We are the 99%, hear us roar!

We are the 99 percent, hear us roar!

Seniors Henry Goldstone and Daniele Violi, who wanted to design something that was more creative than a simple camp or tent, drove around all last night collecting discarded objects and scraps in preparation for the masterpiece that they would set up on Sproul today.

Why exactly did they choose to make a dinosaur?

“It represents the ferocity of the tactics the regents have used in suppressing student voice, student activism,” said Goldstone. “It’s also the metaphorical extinction of the Board of Regents.” Damn, artsy indeed.

2. Safe Space


Not as safe as a tent, but it'll serve

It is a little hut made of twigs. There are people nearby playing a trumpet and harmonica, while a drummer sits inside. Yeah.

“This space defines community,” said junior Melissa Jullig. “It creates a community where people can come together.”

3. Cardboard/Wood Paraphenalia

Is this supposed to represent... the flight of the 1%?

A group called the UC Movement for Efficient Privitzation (UCMeP) set up a satirical protest by representing the 1 percent.


Exclusive luncheon on Sproul

UCMeP’s Shane Boyle invited the Clog to join the 1 percent, and “taste what it feels like to have no feelings of guilt or shame.” We asked what he thought about the tuition increases, to which he exclaimed, “The problem with the increases is that they are not drastic enough!” Someone needs to set these guys up with a stint with Stephen Colbert.
