Hunger Strike at UC Berkeley Opposing SB 1070

UC Berkeley students are engaging in a hunger strike in an effort to compel the university administration to denounce the new Arizona immigration statute. The students are also demanding that the university make the campus a sanctuary for undocumented persons. Since the strike started, the number of hunger strikers has grown from 20 to 40.
