The UCB occupation, and the huge crowds it drew, lead to increased national corporate coverage for other occupations and actions across California.

Numerous protesters were injured by violent police as Alameda County Sheriff's Deputies set up metal barricades later in the day. "Peaceful protest, peaceful protest," was chanted throughout the day to remind the police they were facing off against unarmed civilians.
