first_imgAbout 40 protestors with signs reading “We belong here” and “No taxation without representation” shouted “Si se puede” and “Fight on” at the protest. Student speakers said that they were speaking on behalf of the students who used El Centro and that the university’s impending decision to move El Centro did not take student voices into account.The El Centro Ambassadors, a united group of students against the proposed relocation of El Centro, started a petition on April 3 that objected to the university’s decision to relocate the center from the United University Church, where it has been for 33 of its 40 years, to the Student Union, where other cultural centers student organizations currently are located.Protesters voiced complaints detailed in the petition, a chief criticism being that the proposed space to move El Centro is half the space in the United University Church.El Centro Director William N. Vela, who observed the protest from several yards away, said he estimates that between 200 and 400 students pass through El Centro each week.“What we’ve started in the last eight years since I’ve been here is special,” Vela said. “We’ve been there for over 30 years. We do a lot of work with the community, and there are a lot of students who respect the history.”The relocation of the center will also mean the elimination of free printing and computer services that El Centro currently offers to its students.Edgar Aguilar, a senior majoring in theatre, said the resources that El Centro provides would be lost through the relocation.“All of it will be gone,” Aguilar said. “There will be no place for students to study, no place for meetings and no place for students to just hang out.”Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Denzil Suite told the Daily Trojan that the university’s plan to move El Centro Chicano is aimed at better fostering the interaction between El Centro and other cultural organizations on campus.Despite the argument that the move will consolidate all of the cultural organizations under one roof, many supporters of El Centro Chicano argue that the center is already heavily involved with the other cultural organizations on campus.“We already work in collaboration with all of the other groups on campus,” said Consuelo Siguenza-Ortiz, an assistant professor of Spanish and a USC alumna. “Having this physical proximity will not work any better.”Some protestors also feel that the relocation will remove what has become a second home to many Latino students.“It has a special place in my heart,” Aguilar said of the center. “It’s a place that is able to unite us and they shouldn’t be able to take that away from us.”Susana Pineda, a junior majoring in psychology, said the move will be a loss to many Latino students who have built emotional connections to El Centro.“Moving El Centro is like moving homes for so many students,” Pineda told the Daily Trojan on April 13. “Although [it’s] just a location, it’s absurd to say that this place has not grown on so many students.” Students, staff and alumni in support of El Centro Chicano stood in front of Tommy Trojan at noon on Thursday to protest the university’s decision to relocate the center to the Student Union.“We belong here” · Edgar Aguilar, a senior majoring in theatre, protests the relocation of El Centro Thursday near Tommy Trojan. – Rachel Bracker | Daily Trojanlast_img read more

first_imgLOS ANGELES >> For the Dodgers, the path to the postseason becomes more clear by the day. Each time they beat a right-handed starting pitcher, as they did in a 5-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday, their path to the National League Championship Series becomes more clear, too.Two of the Dodgers’ four hits against Rockies starter Jon Gray cleared the fences on a day when their own starter, Scott Kazmir, lasted just one inning. Gray, whose previous start was a four-hit, 16-strikeout, complete-game shutout at Coors Field, labored against a patient lineup loaded with left-handers. Gray threw 106 pitches in only four innings. A two-run single by switch-hitter Yasmani Grandal (batting left-handed) gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Joc Pederson’s 24th home run of the season and Andre Ethier’s first came on back-to-back pitches in the fourth inning.That was all the run support the Dodgers’ bullpen needed. Ross Stripling (5-8) and five other relievers allowed one earned run over the final eight innings, preserving the victory.At least Gray’s misery has company.The Dodgers’ .768 on-base plus slugging percentage against righties ranks third among National League teams. On Saturday, they will face Chad Bettis, another right-hander, needing only one day to turn their magic number (2) into a fourth consecutive National League West title.The San Francisco Giants lost to the San Diego Padres earlier Friday, and trail the Dodgers by seven games in the division. They have eight games remaining on their schedule, too. The Giants and Padres begin play Saturday at 5:40 p.m., a half-hour before the first pitch at Dodger Stadium. If Clayton Kershaw can coax the Dodgers to victory, the division might well be clinched by the time of the final out.Making his first start since Aug. 22, Kazmir left after throwing only 19 pitches because of right intercostal spasms. He allowed two hits and was bailed out by a strong throw from left fielder Andrew Toles to retire Nolan Arenado at home plate to end the first inning.Kazmir was already an unlikely choice to make a postseason start for the Dodgers. He hadn’t pitched in a month due to inflammation in his neck. His only minor league rehabilitation game during that span lasted less than one inning.The Dodgers have healthier starters on their roster like Brett Anderson, Jose De Leon and Brock Stewart. Another, Brandon McCarthy, is due to come off the disabled list any day now. Each of them seems more likely to join Kershaw, Rich Hill and Kenta Maeda if the Dodgers need a fourth starter in the playoffs.While Kazmir’s chances of pitching in October diminished, Stripling’s grew. He threw three shutout innings, allowing two hits, two runs and striking out four. The rookie right-hander is in the running to be a long reliever in October.The Washington Nationals, the Dodgers’ likely opponent in the NL Division Series, feature a right-handed heavy rotation. Four-fifths of their current starters — Max Scherzer, Tanner Roark, Joe Ross, A.J. Cole — throw with their right hand. So does Stephen Strasburg, who is on the disabled list with a flexor mass strain. The only exception is southpaw Gio Gonzalez.These thoughts were more than allowed for the announced crowd of 52,320 at Dodger Stadium. For a night, they were encouraged.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
