Occupy Cal raided; Occupy UCLA set up
Last night, Occupy Cal was raided by UCPD. Two people were arrested, and they bulldozed all the stuff that people didn't take away. There will be an emergency GA to plan next steps tonight at 6pm, but already, we're back in force.
Having rescued the library last night, a group set up this morning a massive field of book tents on the steps. And since noon, there's been dancing and drumming at the foot of the steps. As I write, danza -- a campus dance troupe -- is out on the impromptu stage. And everyone is talking about tonight's GA, which promises to be big. Occupy Cal isn't going away.
And not only is Occupy Cal back in force, but we just learned that Occupy UCLA set up tents and got going today! As we say: Screw us and we multiply.
