On July 13th, A number of UC Students came together in a show of support for the five people currently being held on assault charges as a result of a brawl at Chandelier’s Hookah Lounge & Smoke Shop on Saturday night. The fight was between police officers and a number of party-goers at the event that night. While investigations are ongoing, students are demanding a show for support for Isa Bey, a current UC student, from UC Merced. After this event on campus, the protest moved downtown, and culminated with a march on the Merced Police Station.
