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.
