Occupy CA reports that UC Santa Cruz has been the first to be hit with occupations.
Interesting Fact: UC Santa Cruz only has two entrances in and out of the campus. The west entrance and the north entrance. This is a well-known and unfortunate fact for administrators. Students have shut down both entrances, effectively shutting down the campus.
From OccupyCA: Some people have been hit by cars breaking the picket line, breaking someones leg and hitting another 3 or so people. (confirmation?)
Also, Daily Cal reports that 65 people have shut off Sather Gate, linking arms and chanting “no cuts, no fees, education must be free.”
Stay tuned for more as the day continues!
