7:10 am
week, you should have foreseen an action like this. >> our campus had seen an unrest for the last 2 1/2 weeks. and that has been building up. i don't want to say, of course, that there were -- it was a difficult decision for the campus to really try to make sure that the students are safe. whenever incidents like this happen, the biggest, critical issue for us is the safety of the students using the campus facilities, who really want to learn in this environment. the situation was becoming a concern for us, the members of the community. the decision was not to disperse the students but really to dismantle the appointment for the encampment and there was an effort for many, many days -- >> chancellor, you say you were concerned -- excuse me, you say you're -- we're looking at the
