"I've been here since 1972, and I've never seen anything like it." - George Lakoff

"For most of UC, today was THE FIRST DAY OF CLASSES, so there was essentially no time to organize. That makes #UCwalkout even more amazing." - @studentactivism

The scale of the protests has come as a shock to state authorities." - The Guardian (UK)
