SFSU building held hostage

San Francisco State University students block an already-barricaded and locked entrance to the campus’ business building Wednesday in protest of budget cuts and fee hikes. About 20 or 30 SFSU students entered the building sometime before 5 a.m. and refused to leave, university spokeswoman Ellen Griffin said. The university found alternative locations for classes affected by the protest, although “it’s a somewhat light week prior to exams,” which are scheduled for next week, Griffin said.
