Protests were seen across the state on the same day, including Santa Cruz, Los Angeles and Irvine.
Universities across the state are answering calls to action and organizing Occupy protests. The Berkeley call to action is inspired by a similar event at Oakland and is reportedly prompting previously uninvolved students to become involved and take action against the fee increases and budget cuts.
It is fascinating to see the ripple effect of the Occupy movement throughout our country. No longer willing to stand down and let the government take control of all aspects of our lives, the members of the Occupy movement are having a profound impact all over the country, and even in other countries.
The students at Berkeley voted overwhelmingly to initiate the call to action and student strike planned for November 15, with 569 votes for the strike and 31 against it. Demonstrations are planned to follow the day after the strike, and a strike by the California Faculty Association is planned for November 27 at both California State University East Bay and California State University Dominguez Hills.
