UC Berkeley students take over building

Reposted from SF Chronicle.

(11-20) 08:59 PST BERKELEY --

UC Berkeley students took over a campus building in protest this morning, a day after the University of California regents voted to raise tuition by 32 percent.

An undetermined number of protesters barricaded themselves at about 6 a.m. inside Wheeler Hall, which houses the English department.

Several demonstrators wearing bandannas opened a window, displayed a sign reading "32% Hike, 900 layoffs" with the word "Class" crossed out in red. They used a bullhorn to denounce the regents' decision and to rally support from a group of students chanting outside.

University and Berkeley police cordoned off the building, located just north of Sather Gate, with yellow police tape.

Support Anarchist arrested at UC Berkeley!

Doug Gilbert was targeted specifically because of his political views. Upon leaving yesterday's rally, police on bicycles followed him down Telegraph Avenue. Inside of a local restaurant, police violently confronted two comrades, before proceeding to the back of the establishment and arresting Doug while in the restroom. Berkeley CopWatch filmed the arrest. When they asked police what this comrade was being arrested for, the pigs responded “he can tell you later.”

A student activist was seen talking to police, specifically pointing out several individuals, including Doug. Further, CopWatch was told by bystanders that the cops said something along the lines of “there's that anarchist,” immediately before the arrest was made. This exemplifies two truths of the present social order: the liberal student movement is by nature a recuperative force, and seeks to further empower the state, rather than students

Pirate Cat Radio Gagged by the FCC

On August 31st, Pirate Cat Radio was fined $10,000 by the Federal
Communications Commission for extra-legal broadcasts. The FCC’s order
temporarily halted Pirate Cat Radio’s thirteen-year run as one of the Bay
Area’s most consistent voices of protest against corporate-run media
monopolies and monocultural programming. Pirate Cat Radio has responded to
the FCC and is currently challenging this fine. Read more about the
situation here:

But the station is operated by volunteers and essentially run as a
not-for-profit business. So ten large is hard to come by around here. And
that’s why we need your help.

Until the end of the year, Pirate Cat Radio will be in full pledge drive,
telethon, benefit, and fundraising mode, working to raise the cash we need
to continue operations as an internet broadcaster. This way, we can
preserve our original programming and continue to serve our listeners
