OC Supervisor Katrina Foley Releases Statement on Developments at the UCI Rowland Hall Encampment

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA — Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley released a statement on developments at the UCI Rowland Hall Encampment.  

“I value the right to peacefully protest. However, we cannot enable the recent escalations which include the disruption of classes and vandalization of campus property,” said Supervisor Katrina Foley. 

“UCI is a place of learning, research, and free expression. Maintaining this requires the situation surrounding these protests to remain peaceful. I reached out to the Chancellor to encourage the administration practice restraint, peacefully disperse the protestors, and subsequently re-engage in negotiations with our students.”
