Center for the Study of Human Rights in the Americas
The UC Davis Center for the Study of Human Rights in the Americas (CSHRA) is an academic initiative for the comprehensive study of human rights across the American continent. Its mission is to gather information about human rights in our hemisphere, interpret it from interdisciplinary perspectives, develop appropriate legal instruments, create relevant curricula, and enhance human rights in the Americas through enlightened action.
"Enlightened Action" you mean like...pepper spraying students for exercising their constitutional rights.
I find it interesting that UC Davis received a generous grant from the UC Davis Committee on Research to study human rights. From the web site it appears they're really concerned with torture and human rights violations in Guantánamo but not so much on their own campus.
UC Davis's mission to enhance human rights through enlightened action is a total fail and a load of crap. Actions speak louder than self promotion I'm afraid.
A department within the school does not define the rules and laws that run the police department.
Ok a few people seem to have replied to my comment...

What if elderly people had to walk along that footpath and could not walk on the lumpy grass incase they fell???
Block public space and be expected to be removed simple as that.
You know, somehow I feel like the protesters would let the elderly through. You're just coming up with excuses. I mean, did you see the video where the protesters created a massive silent path for the Chancellor to walk through? They have the ability to move, and will voluntarily do so. The police were telling them they had no choice and that they had to disperse or else.

or they could have moved off the path when told to - their choice, but with choice comes repercussions.
