3:08PM : Arrests and police violence occurring, call the SDPD and demand an end to the violence on students from Memorial Jr. High
The SD Union Tribune is reporting today: "Oceanside middle and high schools were ordered closed for the rest of the week and other campuses around the region were bracing for a fourth day of student protests over proposed revisions to federal immigration laws.
The Oceanside district made the decision to close schools after 250 student protesters faced off with police officers in a melee Wednesday at Oceanside High. The closure will affect around 10,000 students.
Some students hurled food, milk cartons and plastic bottles at officers, prompting law enforcement to shoot pellets filled with pepper spray at the crowd's feet, police said.
Three boys threw chunks of concrete at officers and were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Oceanside Sgt. Leonard Mata said...
About 2,000 San Diego students engaged in marches and demonstrations over proposed immigration reforms from about a dozen San Diego schools on Wednesday, an increase from around 1,200 on Tuesday, San Diego Police Assistant Chief Bill Maheu said."
Walkouts continued thursday in Arizona and Texas, with hundreds of students marching through El Paso and Tuscon and blocking traffic. Students continue to organize themselves using flyers and word of mouth as schools are restricting cell phone usage. 26 students were arrested in Houston this morning. At Lamar high school in Houston, students protested inside of school.
Few students walked out in LA today, but there are still huge walkouts planned tomorrow, including high schools and universities. There have been callls put out for massive student sit-ins on April 4th.
