Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi of the University of California-Davis has come under heavy criticism and calls for her resignation following her support of the use of pepper spray by campus police on unresisting demonstrators.

On Saturday, students and supporters surrounded the building where she was holding a press conference, and Katehi simply refused to leave for several hours.

She finally emerged after the students sat down with linked arms and watched in complete silence as she walked between their ranks.
