Hundreds of students from all over California, unhappy with plans to raise tuition for the state’s public university system, held a raucous protest in San Francisco on Wednesday. They clashed with police and tried to stop a regent – a member of the board that governs the university system – from entering the building where the measure was being debated.

The video below shows students blocking the regent’s way. The regent starts to panic, and several police officers arrive to form a circle around him. They attempt to get him past the students, before giving up and ushering him away from the scene.
