From the KQED news blog:
Two City College of San Francisco students arrested yesterday at a chaotic protest against the state-imposed administration were released from jail this morning.
Labor studies major Otto Pippenger, 20, is charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest and battery on a peace officer, according to the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department. Members of the American Federation of Teachers Local 2121 and fellow students raised about $1,600 to post his bail, said Pippenger’s mother, Heidi Alletzhauser.
English major Dimitrious Philliou, 21, was cited and released early this morning for resisting arrest and “returning to school property,” according to the sheriff’s department.
About 200 students and teachers with the Save CCSF Coalition rallied yesterday afternoon at the school’s main campus demanding the resignation of Special Trustee Robert Agrella, the reinstatement of City College’s elected board of trustees, and an end to a new payment policy requiring class fees to be paid up-front, at the beginning of the semester. Agrella was made a special trustee with broad administrative powers after an accreditation agency ruled it would pull the school’s accreditation. This would render the school ineligible to receive state funding and close the school.
