U.C. students protest budget cuts, fee hikes

Students are traveling to Sacramento to protest new tuition fees

Topics: Education, California,

University of California students from around the state have traveled to the state capital to protest steep fee hikes and cuts to higher education funding.

More than 150 students gathered Monday outside the Capitol in Sacramento, waving signs and urging lawmakers to take action against rising fees.

The demonstration comes three days before a planned “National Day of Action for Public Education.” Students from the UC, California State University and community college systems will hold rallies, marches, teach-ins and class walkouts throughout the state on Thursday.

Similar protests are planned around the country.
