Protesters held teach-ins and spoke in groups on Sproul Plaza on Thursday morning.

On Wednesday, a planned Day of Action merged with Occupy Cal, leading to a protest in which over 1,000 demonstrators filled Sproul Plaza on the UC Berkeley campus. Over the course of the day, police used batons to break threw throngs of people, more than 30 people were arrested and protesters decided to set up an encampment despite warning from campus administration that that would not be tolerated. Today, tens of protesters remain on the steps of Sproul and most await the general assembly planned for 6 p.m. this evening.
