On Birgeneau...

see @amrutatrivedi

also it is funny - he asked for it-- but:
State senator requests public meeting with Chancellor Birgeneau on Sproul Plaza

amrutatrivedi Amruta Trivedi
Academic senate meeting adjourned. Passed 4 resolutions
42 minutes ago
__
1. Opposes all violent police responses to non-violent protest, whether that protest is
lawful or not.
2. Condemns the UC Berkeley administration’s authorization of violent responses to nonviolent
protests over the past two years.
3. Demands that Chancellor Birgeneau, Executive Vice Chancellor Breslauer, and Vice
Chancellor LeGrande take responsibility for and repudiate such policing as it occurred
over the past two years.
4. Demands that these administrators develop, follow and enforce university policy to
respond non-violently to non-violent protests, to secure student welfare amidst these
protests, and to minimize the deployment of force and foster free expression and
assembly on campus.
