Sproul encampment disbands after one night

Protesters affiliated with Occupy Cal disbanded their encampment on Sproul Plaza Friday morning.

Four tents were set-up on the plaza Thursday afternoon to protest the week’s three-day UC Board of Regents meeting at UCSF and in commemoration of last year’s Occupy Cal movement, according to protestor Navid Shaghaghi. Shaghaghi said the encampment was always planned as a one night event and that the protesters held a general assembly with other Occupy members to plan out what the movement should do next Thursday night.

“There’s one other action that we’re thinking we might take this semester, but we’re nowhere near ready for us to talk about,” he said. “It will probably be something related to the chancellor.”
