As officers created an elaborate "defensive" formation, they adjusted the positions of their batons in a synchronized movement as group. A student then placed the coffins in front of the police line.
After a short rally at the police station, students marched away chanting, "No Justice, No Peace, Fuck the Police."
A flyer announcing the vigil read, "We, students and workers of UC Santa Cruz, believe there is a connection between the privatization of our university and police terrorism. It's no coincidence that police murders and mass incarceration have gotten worse at the same time our universities are privatized. These issues are different, but interrelated, because the people that profit are the same. The tuition hikes and police murder are both racialized class warfare."
