Berkeley, a brand associated with gourmandism and subversion, has once more joined the fray. The fray is an amalgam of objections, ranging from alleged evil university global practices, to specific campus complaints from staff and students.

Labor dispute, right. cops, left; 8 students beat cops into building, take over athletic director's office. According to the Daily Californian: UCPD issued a final 'admonishment' about 8 p.m., and eight students who refused to leave were forcibly removed and cited with trespassing and disrupting a business. The students were, later given a court date.
