City College: Arrests Made as Protesters Barricade Themselves into Campus Building

Posted By on Fri, Mar 14, 2014 at 8:25 AM

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.  

In addition to the arrests, a group of demonstrators occupied Conlan Hall overnight, demonstratively exiting the building this morning

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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
