UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi waits to speak to students in front of a sign urging her resignation at an "Occupy UCD" rally on campus on Monday, Nov. 21, 2011.

Photojournalist Max Whittaker did a great job telling the story at hand with this photograph he made at the rally today.

Reuters reports:

Several student leaders and faculty members addressing the rally called for UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi to resign, saying her mishandling of the school's response to campus protests led to excessive use of force by campus police.

"You may not believe anything I say today. It's my responsibility to earn your trust," she said, drawing scattered boos and jeers. When she added, "I don't want to be the chancellor of the university we had on Friday," she was answered by cries of "Resign!"

Eleven students on the University of California-Davis campus were pepper-sprayed by police while engaging in a peaceful protest. Student protester David Buscho describes what he felt when he was sprayed in the face and U-C Davis professor Nathan Brown tells Ed Schultz why the school's chancellor should resign.

Police in full riot gear pepper sprayed University of California Davis students, as the young protesters sat arms linked, making no moves. But even some professors are now saying it's not just the police, but the university that failed its young students. NBC's Kristen Dahlgren reports.
