Santa Cruz native and current UC Berkeley student Ariella Powers was arrested last Saturday for failure to disperse at the scene of a crime at an Occupy Oakland protest.
Hahn Student Services building is put on “restricted access” in anticipation of student protest.
A fluctuating number of students affiliated with Occupy California, a UC student political activist group, remain barricaded in the Graduate Student Commons (GSC) located above Joe’s Café in Quarry Plaza, as this goes to print. Occupy California aims to resist the budget crisis by using occupation as a strategy tactic.
The UC Santa Cruz occupation of the GSC building comes in response specifically to furloughs, lay-offs, rising tuition costs and other actions taken by the University of California administration.
