Nevada Students Stage Budget Protest

(via student activism):

An estimated seven hundred UNLV students walked out of their classes yesterday in protest against cuts in the Nevada governor’s proposed budget. They were joined in their action by students from two other Nevada state colleges, as well as the president of UNLV, the chancellor of the state’s public university system, and the chair of the system’s board of regents.

The students rallied on campus, then rode chartered buses across town to demonstrate outside a meeting of the state legislature’s finance committee.
