Protesters were ejected from the CSU board of trustees meeting as they shouted down the trustees. Once outside, they confronted University Police and broke a glass door while demanding to be allowed inside again.

The California State University board of trustees voted narrowly to increase annual tuition by 9%, or $500, for next fall. With the increase, annual tuition for undergraduates will rise to just under $6,000.

Violent disruptions at CSU trustee meeting

By Carla Rivera:
At a meeting in Long Beach marked by violent disruptions, the California State University board of trustees on Wednesday voted narrowly to increase annual tuition by 9%, or $500, for next fall. With the increase, annual tuition for undergraduates will rise to just under $6,000.

The 9-to-6 vote was taken behind closed doors and out of public view after police removed chanting, whistle-blowing protesters from the meeting room. Several protesters were taken into custody after a group tried to storm the meeting room, shattering a glass door.

The vote comes as students, faculty and labor groups have intensified pressure on University of California and Cal State leaders to oppose further fee hikes and education cuts.

Students and members of the group ReFund California tried to storm the front door and police released tear gas to push them back. Several protesters were handcuffed and arrested.

    Does that look like resisting arrest?

    I was at the protests and am picture in several of the above photos. The article and caption are blatantly false: protestors were situated well away from the doors of the building when the glass shattered. University police had slammed them shut and were attempting to affix a chain to the doors when one of them stuck the glass with a metal police baton, shattering it from the inside. Note that in photo #3, above, the majority of shards fell out side of the building, indicating the glass was broken from the inside. Channel 34 News (Spanish-language) also reported and showed video footage of police breaking the glass after protestors had backed away, and there are additional photos and videos on Occupy Long Beach's Facebook page.

    Whoever is responsible for breaking the doors, the worst part of this to me is that the trustees voted WITHOUT the presence of the student trustee, and behind closed doors. If they don't want to take action in public view, they shouldn't take action. Tuition has risen by more than 100% in the past ten years. My daughter now pays more in one semester than someone would have paid for the entire year ten years ago – more than I paid for my entire college education (including a master's from UC Berkeley!) in the 70's and 80's. And although our family was told that our "expected family contribution" for her expenses would be $5000 less than the cost of attendance, she still didn't qualify for financial aid to cover that gap. College is an investment in our future as a state, but we're not making that investment – we'd rather pay to incarcerate than to educate our youth.
