UCLA students and supporters took to the streets today to protest cuts to the budget that have led to an increase in fees, reports the AP.

About 200 people participated, closing down parts of Wilshire and Westwood boulevards. At about 3:20 p.m., after being asked to leave, about ten people remained and waited to be arrested. The AP reported that police had begun to move in to make the arrests.
