Here’s a txt I just recieved regarding the actions in Berkeley and Oakland this afternoon from UCD students who are there…
Monday Nov 23, 3:04 p.m.
We started at berkeley early handing out fliers and raising awareness.. Then the rally started with stories of police brutality. Everyone hopped on the bart while us davis kids drove. We rallied outside the courthouse and when we got in, the felony charges were dropped and then the other charges post poned. We rallied into the streets and stopped traffic. We reached president yudof’s office and we went though alot of security by chanting peaceful protest. Just made it to his secretary’s desk and things are escalating because they won’t let us see him. Cops locked the exit and now we’re sitting inisde.
We just got outside bc the riot police just came
