A pair of students were arrested yesterday
during a protest at City College, and some demonstrators remained barricaded within an administration building on campus overnight following heated clashes with police
Peter Anning, a CCSF spokesman, told the media that one student was pepper-sprayed during the demonstration on the Ingleside campus, and another was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer.
More than 100 protesters yesterday called for the resignation of Robert Agrella, the special trustee installed last July to run the embattled school in lieu of its own elected board of trustees. At issue yesterday
was a plan implemented under Agrella requiring students to pay up or establish a payment plan prior to registering for classes.
A second rally is scheduled for Friday afternoon at CCSF's Chinatown/North Beach campus regarding the school's five-year master plan. And yet another rally will be held at 12:30 today prior to a committee hearing in which Supervisor David Campos' nonbinding resolution calling for the reinstatement of the school's board will be heard.
That's a busy schedule. And a number of the demonstrators may have slept poorly indeed.
