Protest Blockade at Berkeley

Anti-apartheid demonstrators formed a human blockade and succeeded in shutting down UC Berkeley's administration headquarters this morning in a protest against university investments in companies that do business in South Africa. "We're going to try to take the building all day if we can," Eric Nakano, a protest organizer, told cheering students sitting in front of California Hall's main entrance. Workers reporting for work this morning were sent home by university officials, who asked them to return in the afternoon.
