    Protesters shown at a UC Regents meeting in November. Protesters upset another UC Regents meeting on Wednesday.

    Another UC Regents meeting, another pack of angry protesters.

    Wednesday's meeting to discuss tuition hikes ended in a walk-out -- by the members of the University of California Board of Regents -- after a group of about a dozen protesters stood up, began clapping their hands, and refused to stop, according to the Associated Press.

    The regents walked out at around 10 a.m., the AP reported. No word as to when they planned to resume.

    The tuition hike was merely up for a discussion. A vote on higher student fees was to come at a future meeting.

    The demonstrators said they were protesting "UC management," tuition hikes and police crackdowns on campus protests, the AP reported.
