    SANTA CRUZ -- UC Santa Cruz is charging 36 students $944 each in restitution for their involvement in November's occupation of the main campus administration building, officials confirmed Monday. Of the 45 students investigated, 36 were found to have played some role in the protest over student fee hikes, an incident that caused nearly $34,000 in damage, spokesman Jim Burns said. The cost of the repairs was split evenly among the students. Additionally, Judicial Affairs Officer Douglas Zuidema recommended in letters issued April 7 that seven of the students be dismissed, suspended or placed on probation, while 29 others received...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Even as President Obama arrives in Pittsburgh for the Group of 20 summit, protesters and police are clashing on the streets after police tried to break up a march opposing the meeting. Protesters rolled trash bins toward police and a man in a black hooded sweat shirt threw rocks at a police car, breaking the front windshield. Some protesters also are using pallets and corrugated steel to block a road. Officers fired gas at the protesters. Some of those exposed to the gas were coughing, complaining of eyes watering and stinging. The march began with several hundred...

    BERKELEY — Six months after Tristan Anderson, a former UC Berkeley tree sitter and Bay Area activist, nearly died after being struck in the head with a tear-gas canister fired by Israeli troops, friends are holding a benefit Sunday to raise money for his recovery costs. Anderson, 38, remains at a rehabilitation hospital near Tel Aviv and continues to have setbacks and infections after skull surgery last month, supporters said. The operation came after doctors learned Anderson was suffering from post-traumatic hydrocephalus, a blockage of the ventricles — open spaces in the brain — that causes poor circulation of cerebral...

    Anti-War Protesters Attack Conn. GOP Delegates Some Delegates Doused With Bleach-Like Substance; Rowdy Crowd Estimated At Between 2,000-10,000 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) ― Protesters attacked Connecticut delegates near the site of the Republican National Convention Monday in a demonstration where more than a dozen people were arrested by police using pepper spray amid window-smashing, bottle-throwing and tire-slashing. It was a violent counterpoint to an otherwise peaceful anti-war march not far from the Xcel Energy Center convention site. Many protesters involved in the more violent protest were clad in black and identified themselves to reporters as anarchists. They wrought havoc by...

    BERKELEY -- About 200 protesters rallied on the ground below a tree-top encampment of protesters in a grove of trees next to Memorial Stadium this afternoon as a judge was expected to rule on the fate of an athletic training center planned for the site. Two of the protesters were arrested, while workers hired by UC Berkeley dismantled more of the tree-sitters' roost, cutting ropes, removing supplies and tearing out improvised structures. By early afternoon, most of the protesters' ropes were gone, and one of two large platforms high in the trees toppled to the ground. The year-and-a-half-old tree protest...

    September 15, the day of International ANSWER’s antiwar protest/“die-in” in the capital, started out calmly enough. But it didn’t end that way. It began with a pro-troops rally sponsored by the Gathering of Eagles. This was the group that organized thousands of people, mostly Vietnam Vets, to come to the ANSWER rally last March and heckle the bejeezus out of the surprised antiwar protestors marching to the Pentagon. This time, several hundred Eagles were gathered on the mall, waving American flags, singing patriotic songs, and cheering speeches that praised U.S. soldiers and ridiculed the protestors. It was not yet 10...

Within walking distance of Cameron Village, the people who live here carry a different...

    Coalition seeks to call attention to school's involvement with 'unethical' entities - A UC Berkeley student protest group called the Phoenix Coalition to Free the UC is occupying a redwood tree in the center of campus to challenge the university on its involvement with the military and what the group calls "unethical corporations and regimes." UC Berkeley's pending biofuels research deal with oil industry giant BP sparked members of various activist groups on campus to work together, said Matthew Taylor, a spokesman for the coalition. "Every generation goes through a loss of innocence, recognizing this huge gap between the ideal...

    UW students march on Pentagon with over 50,000 people WASHINGTON, D.C.— “What do we want? Troops out! When do we want ‘em? Now!” Pro-peace chants rang through a Van Galder coach bus filled with members of UW-Madison’s Campus Anti-War Network, as it drove out of a gray, windy Madison toward an even colder, blustery Washington, D.C., Friday. The members marched on the Pentagon to protest the war—Saturday marked the four-year anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The 51 protesting bus riders represented a variety of political ideologies, from Democrat to Green Party to Socialist. The political atmosphere on the...

    As war protesters marched toward Arlington Memorial Bridge en route to the Pentagon yesterday, they were flanked by long lines of military veterans and others who stood in solidarity with U.S. troops and the Bush administration's cause in Iraq. Many booed loudly as the protesters passed, turned their backs to them or yelled, "If you don't like America, get out!" Several thousand vets, some of whom came by bus from New Jersey, car caravans from California or flights from Seattle or Michigan, lined the route from the bridge and down 23rd Street, waving signs such as "War There Or War...
