CALIFORNIA – On Wednesday, students, teachers, and workers across the state protested to refund public education. Among the more severe police repression occurred at UC Berkeley, when students tried to set up tents on a campus lawn in conjunction with the #OccupyWallStreet movement. Police beat demonstrators with batons and removed tents, only to have demonstrators return and try to defend another set of tents. Demonstrators and police clashed again, resulting in approximately a total of 39 arrests through out the day. One demonstrator is reportedly in urgent care. Demonstrators gathered late at night and voted for a strike next Tuesday in response.
