BERKELEY – 8 people were arrested after the concert/riot on Friday night in support of the 66 (or more) arrested folks at Wheeler Hall earlier that morning. Not to speak for any individuals involved or simply present at the riot, it should be clarified that it’s unclear who actually participated in property destruction, people were arrested leaving the scene not during any acts of vandalism. As such, any charges at this point seems to be a part of a witch hunt; not every person of the 80 people marching that night damaged something. Despite any property destruction, the march was supporting the individuals arrested that morning under unjust conditions, so people’s presence shouldn’t equate to being complicit. People are rightfully outraged by the administration’s actions at Wheeler Hall (both on November 20th and December 11th). Read the rest of the article.
