Students in the nine-campus University of California system will protest, on Thursday, the Board of Regents' summer decision to end affirmative action for the university system. Student protesters hope to involve administrators, faculty and also some regents in their day long protest across campuses and march at the Sacramento Capitol. Student leaders expect over 10,000 to protest at UC Berkeley and plan an all day teach-in at UC Davis. At UCLA students have held daily protests since last week, and at UC Riverside, students burned copies of the new decision in garbage cans.
