Police Pepper Spray Passive UC Davis Students

Earlier today, police at UC Davis broke up a group of students protesting the eviction of Occupy Davis. The occupiers sat and joined arms in protest of yesterday’s eviction. They offered no resistance to police, and were not physically aggressive. Police pepper sprayed the protesters after they refused to move. Protesters chanted “Don’t shoot students” and “Shame on you.” After ten arrests were made, the police nervously retreated while students continued to chant “Whose University? Our university!”.

Last week, the SF Chronicle reported that after arrests at UC Berkeley, Captain Margo Bennet said that linking arms was “not nonviolent.”

There are multiple Youtube Videos showing the incident from several angles.
