Here is the final version of the proposed Berkeley Senate Resolution condemning the recent police violence on campus.

In light of all of the intersecting Police Work here is the ACLU's warning about "Fusion Centers."

Prof. Cole,
Your assignment: Visit the front lines of the next Cal protest (yourself!) to learn the difference between a smashed ornamental pot on the Chancellor's portico and the police-smashed fingers on a graduate student.

A must-read article on Chancellor Katehi:

UC Davis Chancellor Katehi’s past: police repression in Greece, FBI spying in the US, http://wsws.org/articles/2011/nov2011/kate-n28.shtml

From the article:

Katehi has spent the past week and a half defending herself against demands for her resignation, while making half-hearted attempts to distance herself from the police violence.

However, Katehi’s claims of innocence in the matter are belied by her past. She has played a major role in developing repressive measures against students protesting austerity measures and is a prime example of the growing nexus between corporate CEOs, academic administrators and the police-intelligence apparatus.

Katehi’s has been involved with police crackdowns in her home country of Greece, is one of 20 administrators involved in a national FBI network aimed at monitoring “anti-U.S.” activities on college campuses, and has overseen an administration-run campus infiltration program.
