Oops! It's not the Third World Liberation Front. It's the third world Liberation Front.

I didn't pay an inordinate amount of attention to the protest, but there was a lot of screaming, some signs demanding consideration of their heritage, and some signs saying "Fuck the UC Regents," so I can only assume their heritage involves screaming "Fuck you!" to people. And they need a special center to do it.

One speaker insisted that minorities would feel welcomed only if they had a place to hang out and talk about stuff. And, again, they need a special center to do that.

I don't know how begging the university (by saying "fuck you" to it) is supposed to make activism work. "Whose university? Our university" is just a stupid chant. It's the State of California's university. If the State walked away, there wouldn't be a university. If the protesters walked away, there are thousands eager to take their place. If they want to have a multicultural center they can control, they should make it themselves without begging the university.

fuck you! WHOSE BLOG? MY BLOG!
from what i understand, i think the issue of the multicultural center isn't about begging the university but making sure the university follows through with an agreement they promised to students years ago...so whether it's about a multicultural center or anything else, shouldnt the administration follow through in meeting student demands anyway?
Well, okay, they're begging the university to make good on the results of the previous episode of begging. It's not a meaningful difference.

Why should the university follow through in meeting student demands? What's in it for the university?
am i the only one who doesn't understand how a multicultural center liberates the third world?
