05-03) 20:04 PDT BERKELEY -- A group of UC Berkeley students started a hunger strike Monday to demand that the university oppose the new Arizona immigration law, drop disciplinary charges against protesters from the occupation of Wheeler Hall earlier this year, rehire laid-off janitors, and make the campus a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants.
Latino groups on the Cal campus called the hunger strike at noon Monday. The strikers have set up camp in front of California Hall.
Mayra Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for the Cal Latino community but not a hunger striker herself, said 20 protesters will not to eat until their demands are met. The hunger strikers were joined Monday afternoon and evening by as many as 75 supporters. Protesters and hunger strikers will camp outside the hall day and night, she said.
