Information is sparse so far this morning, but students occupied buildings on two University of California campuses yesterday, and it appears that one or both occupations are continuing at this hour.
At UC Davis, site of the infamous pepper-spray incident eleven days ago, students occupied Dutton Hall, which houses various financial offices on campus. Meanwhile, at UC Santa Cruz, students occupied the Hahn Student Services building. As of eleven o’clock last night they were still there, and administrators sent out word yesterday evening that the occupation would result in the relocation of offices housed in that building today.
Occupiers at Davis are calling for the resignation of chancellor Linda Katehi, the establishment of the campus as a police-free space, and a tuition freeze.
The two occupations followed protests at all four campuses at which the UC Regents were meeting yesterday by teleconference. That meeting was delayed at three of the four campuses by student demonstrations. No students were arrested or injured at any of the demonstrations.
There have apparently been no moves by administrators to end either occupation, and Davis chancellor Katehi, under fire from critics of the pepper-spray incident, has had no public comment on the Dutton occupation.
More when I get it.
