Tomorrow in Berkeley

There is a strike planned for tomorrow at UC Berkeley. I think at some point, they’ll be a renewed attempt to set up an encampment. This attempted encampment was the official reason for the clashes last week.  The university, as in other places across the country, stated that such encampments were a threat to public safety and moved in to tear them down.  Of course, there’s nothing that says “public safety” better than when police fully garbed in riot gear move in cracking ribs and skulls.   It’s the same logic behind burning a village to “save it” from Communism during the Vietnam War.  Needless to say, “public safety” is just a soundbite, an excuse by which the authorities are trying to rollback the protest tide spreading across the country. Stay tuned for what is sure to be a dramatic day tomorrow.
