Watch BAMN’s press conference to drop the charges against Occupy Cal

As the Occupy movement shut down the Port of Oakland December 12 in conjunction with other port shutdowns across the West Coast, BAMN Attorney Monica Smith and Occupy Cal protesters spoke out at the Oakland courthouse demanding that UC-Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau and Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley not file criminal charges against the Berkeley protesters from November 9, 2011.

Also, the Berkeley City Council voted unanimously December 13th to condemn the UC-Berkeley police violence and demand that no criminal charges be filed!

    Californians subsidize the tuition of foreign students at UC Berkeley (UCB) in the name of diversity while instate student tuition/fees are doubled. UCB Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau replaces Californians qualified for public UCB with a $50,600 payment from foreign students.

    UCB is not increasing enrollment. Birgeneau accepts $50,600 foreign students and displaces qualified instate Californians (When depreciation of assets funded by Californians are in foreign and out of state tuition calculations, out of state and foreign tuition is more than $100,000 + and does NOT subsidize instate tuition).
    Like Coaches, Chancellors Who Do Not Measure Up Must Go: remove Birgeneau.

    More recently, the campus police that report to Chancellor Birgeneau deployed violent baton jabs on students protesting Birgeneau’s tuition increases. The sky will not fall when Birgeneau and his $450,000 salary are ousted.
