This week the Occupy movement drew thousands of California college students to protest on campuses across the state. The University of California system faces some of the steepest budget cuts and tuition hikes in the nation. Tuition and fees could increase by 81 percent over the next four years. This fall, students saw tuition hikes just a few weeks before their classes began. Community colleges and the California State University system face similar fee hikes.
On Wednesday students held protests at least 10 campuses, including UC Irvine, UCLA and UC Berkeley, where police forcibly removed students and arrested 39 people. For more, we turn to a report by KPFA's John Hamilton.
