Stories you shouldn’t miss:
1. The Occupy Cal strike and teach-in drew up to 10,000 protesters yesterday, and by late evening, some demonstrators began pitching tents on campus in defiance of a no-camping edict by UC Berkeley officials, the Chron and Trib report. Hundreds of Occupy Oakland protesters also joined the demonstration after marching from downtown Oakland. Many Occupy protesters plan to march in downtown San Francisco today, demonstrating against big banks and large corporations.
2. UC Berkeley police officers shot a man whom they said was wielding a gun inside the business school, about a half-mile from the Occupy Cal protest. The Chron and Trib report that there is no evidence that the alleged gunman was connected to the Occupy protest and that the incident appears to have been coincidental.
