Protesters slow traffic into UCSD
Posted by George J Janczyn on September 24, 2009
This morning I drove to campus to pick up a book I had reserved (Rivers of Gold: Designing Markets to Allocate Water in California / Brent M. Haddad). It turned out there was a protest against the UC budget cuts in progress, so I took a few photos.
The action was at the Gilman Drive entrance to the campus. This is incoming traffic; I expect the scene will play out in the opposite direction this afternoon when commuters are leaving for the day.
In this clip the speaker with the bullhorn seems to be asking drivers not to hurt the picketers(?).
From the top of the Gilman Parking Structure, looking towards Geisel Library. The library used to be surrounded by Eucalyptus forests. Now a different kind of forest.
