Hunger Strike at UC Berkeley

 
On Monday, May 3rd, the Chican@/Latin@ community at Cal, which includes RAZA, Mecha, Xinaxtli, and others began a hunger strike in front of California Hall in response to the new Arizona SB1070 Law and to the charges imposed on student protesters this school year. The six demands issued include that President Yudof and other UC Chancellors publicly denounce Arizona's SB1070 and that charges be dropped against student activists. Strikers have issued a call to action against racism and oppression for Friday, May 7th.
