Students at UC Davis are marking the one-year anniversary of a clash between student protesters and campus police that resulted in an infamous pepper-spraying.

The university agreed to a $1 million settlement with 21 students for using excessive force.

The gathering held on Monday at the same area on campus was more peaceful, but some problems that lead to last year's protest still exist.
