Saturday morning update: The UCSC occupations are still going on, and the occupiers have trimmed down their list of demands.

The students occupying Campbell Hall at UCLA have declined to present any demands to the administration. The students occupying Kerr Hall and Kresge Town Hall at UC Santa Cruz have … well, they’ve gone in another direction.

Twenty-four short-term demands, ranging from a repeal of today’s fee increases to a total disarming of all UC police. Eleven more long-term demands, including the abolition of the regents and a tripling of state support for the UC system.
