Rally & march.

Inside Wheeler Hall During Sit-in:
Protesters rushed past police into Wheeler Hall.
"FREE! FREE, PALESTINE!"
-
Sit-in! 80 people chose to sit, lock arms, and perform
civil disobedience when Police gave the Dispersal order.
-
Protesters on the outside watched with concern & pounded
on the doors as police used pain compliance to arrest
those sitting-in. Police responded with billy clubs
when one of the doors was forced open.
-
78-79 were arrested, cited for trespassing, and released.
One activist, who was charged with assaulting an officer,
was taken to Berkeley Jail. Close to 100 protesters
marched to the jail to demand his release - met by a
ridiculously large contingent of 60-70 riot cops.
Protesters kept vigil until he was released on bail.
-
Peace.
