Too Much: Latest Streak Of Greek Racism : New University

After learning about the latest atrocities the UC Irvine Greek community committed this past week in the name of philanthropy, it has taken a modicum of restraint to not fill this article’s 500-word limit with “FUCK GREEKS” 250 times over. Journalistic dignity aside, doing so would erase much of the historical context that makes such behavior so abhorrent.

Students Protesting Napolitano Met With Police Aggression : New University

A group of over 80 students marched around campus on Monday to protest UC President Janet Napolitano during her visit to Irvine’s campus, but were met with aggression from police during their demonstration.

Students marched from the flagpoles to Donald Bren Hall (DBH) where Napolitano was set to have a meeting with administration. Representatives from different organizations including APSA (Asian Pacific Student Association), MEChA  (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán), MSU (Muslim Student Union), D.R.E.A.M.S. @ UCI, and the Orange County DREAM Team, graduate students, law students and many undergraduate students joined in this protest. Throughout the rally, students brought up many concerns about Napolitano’s appointment, including the record number of deportations during her time as head of Department of Homeland Security and commented on the fact that she receives a housing stipend of $10,000 while students struggle to pay tuition and workers struggle with pay cuts.

Demonstrators eventually convened on the first floor lobby of DBH as they began approaching the hallway where the room Napolitano was meeting was set to be in. When students attempted to enter the hallway, police officers began closing the doors on students and pushing them out of the doorway. Many students in the front of the group attempting to get through were met with hands of police physically shoving them back. Students claimed that police were pushing them back on their chests and that at least one student was punched by an officer while trying to cross the doorway.

[…]

As the demonstration continued, instructors and students began to make their way to class, but found that the hallway to enter their classroom was blocked by police officers. Those protesting lined the hallways to give space for students trying to get to class, however once they reached the doorway could not pass police officers.  Over a dozen students attempted to go to class, but were continually blocked by police officers from doing so. Ralliers began chanting “Let them go to class!” “Let them pass!” in hopes that officers would let students through, but to no avail. Shortly thereafter, the entire building was closed off and remained closed as of 4 p.m. on Monday.

this year’s long-term goal: bring Hari Kondabolu to campus

I thought the 911 thing wrt the bee incident (lol) on campus today was bc bee stings can be an emergency for some people.. like. I don’t understand why it’s “I’d like to see someone from somewhere other than Irvine try to call 911 for this hahaha”… but like.. 911 goes to your local station.. and.. they.. were.talking.about.this.specific.incident.on.our.campus. not like ‘oh if you ever see a bee anywhere call 911’

LIKE WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO DO, KEEP BOTHERING PEOPLE ON RING ROAD WITH BIKES INSTEAD OR SMTH LIKE I DONT.

IDK I THINK THE POLICING OF CERTAIN STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND PROTESTS ARE SOMETHING THAT I’D RATHER TALK ABOUT
