On March 4, 2010, UC Irvine erupted in a day of lively protest actions as students, faculty and unionized staff joined their comrades across the state and the nation in protesting the privatization of education. At UCI a spirited group of speakers rallied hundreds at a rally at the flagpole, followed by crowds of protesters marching across campus, into Langson Library, and the Gateway Commons by mid afternoon, ending in a smaller crowd gathered on the lawn outside Aldrich Hall, the scene of a sit-in the previous week.
On today's edition of Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, we air speeches from the March 4 rally at UC Irvine, as a document of UCI activism reaching a new scale.
The show airs 9-10 a.m. on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, California, and is simulcast via kuci.org.
