Sat Dec 12 2009 (Updated 02/24/10)Eight Arrested at UC Berkeley After Concert & March
Sat Dec 12 2009 (Updated 02/24/10)After Morning Arrests at "Liberated" Wheeler Hall Eight Arrested on Felony Charges
Students at UC Berkeley re-grouped Friday evening to protest the early morning raid on the Open University at occupied Wheeler Hall. Police raided Wheeler at around 5am Friday morning while many of the students occupying the building were asleep. 66 people were arrested. Students had been occupying Wheeler since Monday, and the space was being used for study sessions, lectures, workshops, and celebrations during "Dead Week," the time between the end of classes and the beginning of final examinations.
At the evening rally, students denounced the arrests earlier that morning, which came without warning. Campus police and administrators had seemed to indicate that the students would be allowed to continue the occupation until Friday. Students also pointed out that while the occupation had not disrupted classes and study sessions at the building, the police locked the building and closed it to students after the raid. Speakers stated that the occupation was an example of how the university could be run and that it was a critique against the privatized nature of the university.
After the rally, a concert, featuring Boots Riley from the Coup, that had been scheduled to take place inside Wheeler Hall was held at an alternate location. The concert was followed by a march on the north side of campus. Police dispersed the marching crowd as it passed by the chancellor's residence. Eight people were arrested and taken to Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. They are being charged with multiple felonies. Among the eight was an Indybay photographer covering the event. As of December 12th, eleven people arrested at student demonstrations in the past week remain in custody at Santa Rita Jail.
