Berkeley, Feb. 25th: a dance party of hundreds taking place on Sproul Plaza turned into an occupation as party-goers took over the construction site of Durant Hall. After taking over the building and causing some amount of property damage, participants took the party onto the streets. The crowd moved down Telegraph Ave., pulling objects into the street to prevent police movement while smashing a window out of a Subway. For more than an hour the party swelled in numbers while dancing around a burning dumpster and throwing projectiles at police who tried to move in. Two people were arrested on felony charges and face arraignment March 1st.
