An internal email sent out this morning by the UCB facilities manager. Very invested in distinguishing "legitimate" occupants from the "suspicious or dangerous" occupants.

Subject: Wheeler Hall is Occupied by Protestors [TODAY! - 11-20-14]

From: Mark DAVIS
Dear Wheeler Hall Occupants,
UCPD has notified us that Wheeler Hall is occupied by about 70 protestors who are mostly concentrated in the main lobby of level 1.
As of now, UCPD has no plans to disperse these protestors and they have indicated that building operations and classes should take place as scheduled.
UCPD is on site and closely monitoring the activity of these people and will notify us if there are any changes to the status of this occupation. The LSFO office, in turn, will share this information asap with building occupants.
As I suggested yesterday afternoon, I would recommend occupants (non classrooms) lock their doors and post signs to direct their legitimate visitors.
Beyond that, UCPD has requested that building occupants be vigilant and report suspicious or dangerous activity to UCPD directly.
Occupants can always call me or our office if they are unsure of what to do or if they need help addressing any of these issues.Thank you,
