UC Regents Ignore Massive Resistance, Vote to Build Nukes

UC San Francisco, 03/25/05 - Today witnessed a passionate display of concern and anger at the decision that the University of California will bid with corporate war profiteer, Bechtel, for the nuclear labs at Los Alamos.

In a time when many schools are on break, more than four dozen students, mostly organized by UC Santa Cruz's Students Against War (SAW), woke at 4:30am to attend the UC Regents meeting in San Francisco. With strong words and strong actions, these students did everything in their power to ensure that they would not be silenced and that the interests of the globe would not be ignored. However, the UC Regents voted unanimously to bid with Bechtel and two other suspicious corporations on the management of Los Alamos labs.

The University of California has been responsible for every nuclear weapon in the U.S. stockpile, including those dropped on Japan. This year will be the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. (Pre-Action Info: 1 | 2)
