UC Students Demand Restoration of Affirmative Action

Students across the University of California school system protested yesterday their Regent's summer decision to repeal affirmative action. During the summer, when school was not in session, Regents voted to drop race and gender as factors in admissio ns, hiring and contracting against the advice of all nine chancellors. Thousands of students held class walkouts, teach-ins, rallies and marches on all nine UC campuses to protest the decision and demand that the Regents rescind it.
