Police entered the ULU cafe and assaulted several students and arrested a young woman who was charged with criminal damage.

ULU vice president, Daniel Cooper, spoke during today’s protest, saying that the action by the university would greatly increase the support for 3 Cosas, and that the point of using chalk was that it caused no damage, being easily wiped off. There were no signs of damage after the plaque was washed.
