I reported last week about the ethnic studies students in Tucson, Ariz. chaining themselves to chairs in order to disrupt a school board meeting, preventing discussion surrounding the Mexican-American or "La Raza" studies program from becoming an elective rather than being banned all together. Students were aided by open-border activist and Pima County Legal Defender Isabel Garcia and ex-professor Ward Churchill during the protest.

According to Tucson Unified School District Board Member Adelita Grijalva, the students shown in the video chanting and chaining themselves to public property are simply practicing "civil discourse."

Grijalva: "They [students] organzied themselves very well tonight."


Reporter: "And are you disappointed by any of their actions?"


Grijalva: "No, no. I think that they are using their right for civil discourse."


Tucson reporter Mike Shaw has the story.
