This is the rally's second straight year - but the crowd and energy level weren't as big as last year. That rally attracted thousands - including some Occupy protesters who were later arrested in the Capitol Rotunda.
Now, after voters passed Proposition 30, there's a one-year tuition freeze at the UC and CSU. But fifth-year Chico State student Ian Ruddell (ruh-DELL) says that's not enough.

Student speakers at the rally called for more higher education funding - through taxes on oil companies and corporations.
