Local march 4th actions

San Francisco, Berkeley/Oakland and DVC were not the only local or semi-local student protests.

The Mout Diablo Unified School District had a number of early morning, noon and after school rallies at local high schools, including Clayton Valley. Many schools pushed up their routine fire/disaster drills to March 4th to show what a disaster budget cuts are.

About 75 parents, students, teachers and administrations gathered outside Dublin High School. At Alisal Elementary, parents, teachers and students began lining both sides of Santa Rita Road at 7:45 a.m. Most carried "Save Pleasanton Schools" signs.

CSU Monterey Bay held a walkout and rally.

watsonville held an after school rally downtown.

at UC Davis about 300 protesters attempted to break through police lines and get onto the highway. one person was cited and released.

the California Maritime Academy held a noon rally.

there was a rally on the steps of the state capital in sacramento.

CSU Fresno held a march and sit-in occupation.

In the Early morning, UC Santa Cruz was shut down. in the evening students marched through downtown.

I'm sure there were plenty other smaller rallies throughout the state, especially at high schools that were not posted onto the internet.
Finally, DVC professor Adam Bessie writes why he chose to protest by not walking out or canceling class. He explains why he believes the pulling of fire alarms at DVC was counter productive and undemocratic.
