Students at the University of California, Berkeley held a day of protest on Friday to demand the creation of additional safe spaces for transgender and nonwhite students, during which a human chain was formed on a main campus artery to prevent white students from getting to class.
The demonstrators were caught on video blocking Berkeleys Sather Gate, holding large banners advocating the creation of physical spaces segregated by race and gender identity, including one that read Fight 4 Spaces of Color.
Protesters can be heard shouting Go around! to white students who attempt to go through the blockade, while students of color are greeted with calls of Let him through!
Students turned away by the mob are later shown filing through trees and ducking under branches in order to cross Strawberry Creek, which runs underneath the bridge.
Protesting students went on to march through the Berkeley Student Union, chanting and disrupting students who are studying.
One student, who was not a part of the protest, tells the videomaker that the demonstrators are being quite childish.
I agree with the right to protest, but disrupting the peace of others is not OK, he says.
The group later occupies the school store, chanting Students Over Profits! They place an eviction notice on the store, which claims the university wrongly allocated this two-story facility to third-party corporations, keeping in line with its intensifying legacy of prioritizing financial profit over student needs.
Demonstrators finally made their way to an intersection in front of campus, where students blocked traffic and chanted, Whose university? Our university!

Nazism under different clokes
Sounds like hate crimes to me and definitely not the same Berkeley I first encountered in the 70s while in the Navy or a few years later as an undergrad at a nearby school. What a shame.
In my opinion a good ole fashioned stungun might be a way to get around them....: )
Segregation Now! Segregation Forever! ...wait what?
They are thugs (blocking people from freely traveling, and they are racists (choosing their victims based on the color of their skin). These bullies disgust me, and they are what Barack Hussein and Hillary created.
Sounds like a TORT.
only way this stops is white alumni stop giving and white students go elsewhere
Forget it Grund, its Berserkly.
Sounds a lot like blocking a road to a campus.
They did this at UC Santa Cruz two years ago and almost every one of the people linked together, spanning Highway 1 went to jail FOR MONTHS.
I don’t see how this is different.
This is Berkeley. It's part of the package.
these children need to be taught manners the hard way.
This reminds me of one of my favorite Reagan stories.
When he was Governor of California, he espoused strict merit for selection at the state schools. One of his aides said, “But, Governor, if we did that Berkeley would be 75% Asian.” To which Reagan replied, “So?”
Clearly, that attitude has been abandon in favor of the racial spoils system.
Yes, expulsion works quite nicely. Let the snowflakes move back with mommy & daddy, work a minimum wage job, and attend community college. Save the parents a mountain of cash.
I know a nuke on SF would harm a few innocents. Can we call it collateral damage yet?
So when will we see federal troops brought in to allow the white students to go to class in the face of intimidation and blocking by the black students?
Will the Governor of California stand in the doorway to the class to block the white students from going in?
...where students blocked traffic and chanted, Whose university? Our university!...
These racists couldn’t run a cafeteria line, much less a university. When whitey’s money runs out, it’s going to be a riot to see how these “students” survive post SHTF.
And they’ll be at the public trough all their worthless lives, after getting a worthless social justice degree that will get them into an affirmative action government job. They hate Whites, but they are happy to spend White tax payer dollars. Too bad Lincoln didn’t live long enough to send them all back to their homelands.
