UC Irvine Protest Update

Cross-posted by Gary Fouse

Apparently, I got to the UCI tuition protest a little too late yestreday due to my class schedule. According to the Orange County Register, one of the little rascals was arrested as he tried to get past police into the Administration building to speak to the chancellor personally. (The chancellor was reportedly out of town.)

Here are some photos of the demonstration from the OC Register. No, those guys in the green t-shirts are not Philadelphia Eagles fans. That's the Muslim Student Union.

And a wonderful time was had by all (except those got got arrested and/or pepper-sprayed).


  1. Good idea for the Muslim "Students" to wear green shirts. When the time comes--and it will, never you fear--it'll be easier to distinguish them. If they take their shirts off, or don other colors, well, then we can always use good old "racial profiling."

    Although what "race" Moslems are is a mystery. They come in all colors, shades, and ethnicities. The only way to recognize them is by the hatred on their faces and their shrill scream: "Allahu akbar!"

  2. The people in Green weren't all MSU, there were a bunch of student from other groups who also wore green. The shirts were worn so protestors would know who to talk to for security, and to keep the rally organized. It wasn't even an MSU event, despite the fact that you would like to pin anything and everything on the MSU

  3. Anonymous,

    Just saw your comment, so here is my belated response. From my viewpoint and impression, it appeared to me that green t-shirts was the uniform of the day for MSU.

    I did not attribute the entire organization of the protest to MSU. They were one group that organized it.
