Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In 1994, Fullerton College students peacefully protested Proposition 187, known as the Save Our State initiative, in the quad. It prohibited illegal aliens from using health and other California social services. The proposition did pass, but was challenged in a legal suit and found unconstitutional by a federal court. Fullerton College students protested a number of issues during these two decades. On April 27, 1985, a campus Christian group picketed the 7-Eleven Store located at 1657 N. Placentia Avenue because of the company’s refusal to stop selling pornographic magazines; in November 1990, Biology Club members picketed Sea World for its treatment of dolphins and whales; in 1993, students protested the lack of a Chicano Studies Program; in October 1996, students protested Proposition 209, an anti-affirmative action initiative, in the quad; and in October 1999, the Indigenous Peoples of America (IPA) held an anti-Columbus demonstration during Native American Day Celebrations, barbecuing an effigy of the Catholic missionary.
