Last week, hundreds of UC Riverside students and others participated in a host of protests marking the current political climate.  Students organized and participated in at least two protests during which the demonstrations spilled off campus and blocked city streets.  Also, co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement arrived on campus last week.  They said they wanted to rally students with strategies on how to endure the events that are leaving many afraid, angry, and hopeless.  KVCR's Isel Cuapio - herself a UCR student - tracked the demonstrations in this report.
