UTU Local 23 supporter pleads to Metro bus driver.
UCSC College Republicans descended from "the hill" to be physically outnumbered and verbally outmatched
as they stubbornly held their ground Thursday afternoon at the Santa Cruz Metro station. 2 UCSC
student groups in solidarity with UTU Local 23 added numbers to the protest and literally surrounded the pack of "anti-strikers". Then the yelling matches ensued. The soundbytes tell the story.
