Students Protest Education Cuts

About 3,500 students from California community colleges are protesting at Pershing Square in Los Angeles.

The rally was organized to protest planned state budget cuts, which would slash $1 billion in funding for the schools. Speakers are telling the crowd in the heart of Los Angeles that the proposed tuition increases would deny a community college education to more than 200,000 students across the state.
