Protesters march to police department, in solidarity with Occupy Oakland

Protesters met at the Memorial Union (MU) at noon for a march in solidarity with Occupy Oakland.

“The march is in support of Occupy Oakland in response to the police brutality and the city of Oakland’s unnecessary crackdown on protesters,” said Sophia Kamran, senior philosophy major.

Marchers chanted, “Show me what democracy looks like, this is what democracy looks like” as they entered the ASUCD Coffee House (CoHo). Drums were used until they were asked to stop by CoHo employees.

Marchers continued across campus into the Silo Union, where they continued to chant “no cuts, no lies, occupy and communize.”

The solidarity march ended in front of the UC Davis Police Department, where 22 protesters sat in front of the locked doors to have their general assembly at 1:08 p.m.
