Right about the time that I was posting yesterday’s piece on the UC Santa Cruz commons building occupation, that sit-in was coming to a voluntary end.

So far there’s been no statement on the end of the occupation by the students who took over the building, and no reporting on the development from UC Santa Cruz’s student newspaper or Santa Cruz Indymedia, but an article in a local paper suggests that the decision to leave came at the request of the graduate student organization that owns the building.

Thanks to @dettman on Twitter for passing on the news late last night.

October 16 update | Another building occupation began last night at UCSC.
