VIDEO: After Pepper-Spraying, A Powerfully Silent Protest At UC Davis
This is one of the most powerful actions I have seen since the beginning of all these protests.
On Friday, November 18th, Campus police of UC Davis told students to move as they were “blocking” a walkway during a protest. They didn’t. Officer Lt. John Pike walked the line of protesters spraying them with mass amounts of pepper spray. The video surfaced on the internet and is now one of the most, if not the most talked about instances in protests worldwide. SEE VIDEO here (keep in mind it is disturbing)
What followed the pepper spray incident was possibly one of the most haunting but beautiful reactions from the students. Students, sitting and standing, thousands of them, remained quiet until Chancellor Katehi got in her car and left the school. SEE VIDEO here
UC Davis Chancellor, Linda Katehi will be addressing thousands of students on Monday the 21st at the General Assembly of OccupyUCDavis.
