For students at UC Santa Cruz, the March 4 protests continued into March 5.

At 5 a.m. PST this morning, protesters blocked the main entrance to campus, preventing cars from entering. They dispersed not long afterward.

Meanwhile, the Associated Press reports that a meeting between UC San Diego students and administration yesterday was "productive and wide-ranging."

The university says administrators agreed to diversify the student body and the faculty through targeted recruitment, provide more classes and instructors dedicated to diversity and rewrite the student code of conduct.

UCSD had been marred by a series of racist events.

And according to multiple Twitter reports, the 160 protesters arrested after marching onto an Oakland freeway are slowly being released from multiple area jails.
