November 23, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
About a thousand University of California students have rallied at the Los Angeles campus to protest budget cuts and tuition increases proposed by the governor. The students marched Sunday afternoon from UCLA to the Westwood Federal Building to demonstrate against a proposed 10 percent fee increase for the 10 UC campuses.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has called for the tuition hike to help reduce an $11 billion state budget deficit.

Education officials are also considering cutting admissions at the 23 California State Universities by 10,000 students.
