A crowd of students from California State University Stanislaus that the Modesto Bee estimated at “several dozen” spent a chunk of Saturday afternoon at the home of CSUS president Hamid Shirvani.

To be precise, they were on his front lawn.

One member of the group knocked on Shirvani’s door and got no answer, so the crowd spent an hour chanting and talking to reporters.

The protest was conceived after a meeting of student activists from a number of CSU campuses. It represents the latest step in the expansion of California budget protests, which for most of the semester were concentrated primarily in the University of California, to the Cal State system.

Asked about university reports that someone rang Shirvani’s door “multiple times” the following morning, protester Barbara Olave said, “that’s not us.”
