San Francisco State protesters swarmed a business school building early Wednesday to protest a hike in their annual tuition around $5,000.

The SF State Chronicle reports: “Occupation is the new form of struggle!” a masked protester cried from a window Wednesday. He went on to read a diatribe denouncing not only the state’s budget cuts to higher education, but sexism, homophobia, capitalist exploitation, the bourgeoisie and campus President Robert Corrigan’s six-figure salary.

They stacked chairs against the doors to prevent anyone from entering, and were soon joined by several hundred more protesters who linked arms in a circle surrounding the building.
