"Students storming the 7 p.m. Board of Trustees meeting were pepper sprayed by police. The students had gathered in protest of the two-tier pricing policy recently instituted at Santa Monica College. The board was going to allow 15 student speakers, and protesters were chanting “let us in!” Police were trying to clear the area because of the potential fire hazard presented by the crowd, but the disgruntled crowd pushed forward, and police drew their clubs and pepper sprayed protesters."
