  11. The Unmanageable UniversityRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Mar 30 | Indybay.org

    Autonomous Students UCSC write: Before dawn on March 3, a group of six students at the University of California Santa Cruz went to the fishhook connecting Highways 1 to 17. Evoking the practice of highway blockades popularized during the Black Lives Matter movement, they chained themselves to aluminum trashcans filled with cement and blocked traffic for nearly five hours. The traffic jam this caused stretched over the hill to snarl Silicon Valley commutes, an act of peaceful civil disobedience that has since become the most controversial of the "96 Hours of Action" declared across the UC system for the first week of March, in protest against tuition hikes and police violence.
