UCI administration is out for blood


SANTA ANA, California – UC Irvine students charged today, December 9th, for a civil disobedience that occurred almost 10 months ago.

From OccupyUCI:

We have just learned that 19 students and supporters have been charged by the District Attorney of Orange County for participation in the February 24 sit in.

Each person is being charged on average with 3 misdemeanors, though 1 person each is being charged with 2 and 4 counts.  The charges include: false imprisonment, obstruction of a public place, being a public nuisance, trespassing, disturbing the peace, and refusal to disperse.  Arraignment will be December 29.

It is important to note that these charges were filed DURING FINALS WEEK and the arraignment will be during Winter Break, while many students go home to see their families.  Not only is this the greatest intensification of political repression coming from the UCI administration yet, it is also a deliberate attempt to disrupt the course work and family lives of students involved in dissent.

We will keep you posted for more about these cases.

    it will be a beautiful day when we realize the language of written law is the language of a dishonest culture. may we live to see the moment when we see fiat law for what it is and scream “we do not recognize your authority, you have no control!”
