Oakland North correspondents Shannon Service and Josh Wolf sit down to review footage of last week’s dance party at UC Berkeley and discuss their impressions of what they saw that night.
On Thursday, Feb. 25, about 200 people gathered at Sproul Plaza for a dance party that had been promoted on Facebook and through flyers distributed on campus. Shortly before midnight the party moved to Durant Hall, which is under construction, at which point the party became an occupation to promote the March 4 demonstrations. The dance party left Durant Hall around 2 a.m. and soon left campus via Telegraph Avenue. Before leaving Durant, several people inside the building sprayed paint on the walls and broke at least one window.

As the crowd headed onto Telegraph someone broke the window at the Subway sandwich shop, and the crowd quickly squared off against the arriving tide of police officers.

Oakland North correspondents Shannon Service and Josh Wolf were there to report on the event. The two reporters sat down to review their footage and discuss what they witnessed that night.

A similar dance party is scheduled at San Francisco State March 3.
