Occupy UC Davis Photos by the School Newspaper’s Photo Editor

Jasna Hodzic, the photo editor of the student run newspaper at UC Davis, has been covering the Occupy UC Davis movement since its inception — before the pepper spraying incident became international news.

Her photos are an interesting look at the movement even before the world’s eyes turned on it. Also, did you know that PetaPixel is based in Davis?

    peaceful protest misses the point of PROTEST!

    people who say you should protest in piece just don’t want you kicking off because then they’ll have to do something about an issue!

    fight for your rights. don’t bend over

    Protest is not a synonym for violence. Name one violent protest that has has been successful. 

    The viewpoint you are holding often undermines potentially effective protests.

    Why are the cops using paintball guns..?

    The American Revolution, for one.  More recently Libya and Egypt.  

    I’m not saying that Occupy should resort to violence (they shouldnt) but simply that you are not correct.  :)

    The American Revolution was a war. A bunch of kids lighting cars on fire is much different than English subjects seceding from the crown.

    And Libya and Egypt were civil wars. Don’t talk about things you don’t know about.

    Both Libya and Egypt started with protests then they went violent.  

    The American Revolution is more debatable, but I would argue that a Revolution is a form of “protest” 

    You shouldn’t about things you don’t know about.  :)

    Pepper spraying was done by a Lard Ass Desk Jockey, “Pepper Pike” is the Manager of the Records Unit.  He was showing the troops his “Street Creeds” by hosing down those nasty militant protesters.  He will be forever known as “Pepper Pike”, I only hope he is fired with loss of any pension rights, barred forever from being a sworn officer and not even allowed to work as night watchman at a hog slaughter house.  Then we’d get to see him march and protest when his unemployment ran out.
