Footage: Occupation, arrests at UC Davis’ Mrak Hall

YouTube: “Nicki Sun Reporting. AggieTV was fortunate enough to film footage from the inside of Mrak Hall before the doors closed (on November 19) during the 32% fee increase protest.”


Nikki, I’m sure this was rushed, but we need identifying supers on all the speakers. Otherwise, good job getting this story!

Footage: NYPD brutalize UC solidarity marchers with batons

From Occupy California: On November 19th, people in support of the University of California occupations marched in solidarity (in NYC). During the night, the police beat some of the marchers.


The following response to this brutal police action is posted at Occupy California along with this video:

Dear NYC Marchers,

we here are speechless at the despicable actions of the NYC police. We send our solidarity to all that have been brutalized by the police in this struggle. As we continue fighting we will face the state’s escalating violence. We must band together in solidarity to support all those comrades who will inevitably fall victim to capitalism’s last defensive stand. We cannot express how much we appreciate you standing in solidarity. As occupations and other radical actions are spreading around the world, we know that our struggle will contribute to revealing capitalism, the state, and all others forms of oppression as the shit that it is. From Greece to the UK, from Vienna to Heidelburg, from Santa Cruz to New York, we want fucking everything! Most of all, we want justice!

fuck the pigs.
