UC Berkeley Declares Prohibition on Chalking, Pirate Party Responds
On Sept 3rd (2013), a registered member of the Pirate Party was detained by UC Berkeley police for chalking slogans at the southern boundary of the UC Berkeley campus, the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement. UC Berkeley took the Pirate's ID, for an "non-criminal incident", at which point it was explained that the UC is interested in pursuing monetary restitution for the removal of standard, non-toxic, wash away with water, sidewalk chalk. Furthermore, it was explained that any continued chalking or attempts at chalking will lead to an exclusion order. The Pirate Party is prepared to challenge the UC in court to reiterate the legality of chalking on UC property.
