The University of California's Board of Regents had canceled meetings just three times, most recently for the invasion of Iraq in 2003, on September 11, 2001 and in 1989 because of the Loma Prieta earthquake. That was until today, when a meeting in San Francisco was cancelled by what UC police called "rogue elements intend on violence and confrontation." At the campus in Long Beach today, the Cal State University Board of Trustees raised tuition by nine percent and denied faculty raises promised for next year by their current contract.
