6:45pm: Police Trying to Close Open University, Come to Wheeler Right NOW
"Police saying we can only use Wheeler Hall (UC Berkeley) until 7:30pm.

110 people here now. Need as many people as possible to keep the open university open! Come ASAP!"

"The 'open university' situation at wheeler auditorium is quickly becoming dire. the office of student life, cal performances, and the uc police are attempting to remove us from wheeler auditorium - this is all before prof bob meister has even spoken. They are trying to remove us because we did not pay for the space, claiming 'liability issues.' PLEASE COME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, and get everyone you know over here."

We have successfully negotiated with the cops. We have the main room at this moment (9:12). We are still not sure if they are going to make a fuss about having the building for 24 hours. 10 pm will be the deciding factor, we need as many ppl here by 10. Tons of ppl studying, and hot warm food just arrived.

Liberating our spaces, step 1 to our open university!!!

Cops have locked doors at Wheeler

And issued vacate order to those inside
