OCCUPY CAL’S “SLEEP-OUT”
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, November 21, 2011
The General Assembly of Occupy Cal has called for a ‘Sleep-Out’ at
Sproul Plaza (UC Berkeley) on Monday, November 21. Students, faculty,
workers, and community members will establish a one-night encampment
to protest the cuts to public education and the brutal crackdown on
free speech and dissent at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and UC Los Angeles.
Occupy Cal was formed on November 9 in solidarity with Occupy Wall
Street and OccupyOakland, and in opposition to the cuts to and
privatization of California’s public education systems. The first
attempt to establish Occupy Cal on November 9 ended in the merciless
beatings and arrests of students and faculty by Bay Area police. On
November 15, UC Berkeley’s campus-wide strike and day of action
culminated in the largest assembly in the occupy movement thus far, in
which over a thousand people voted overwhelmingly to establish the
second tent encampment on campus as a form of free speech and free
assembly. In the early morning of Thursday, November 17, riot police
once again attacked Occupy Cal, forcibly removing the tent encampment
and its inhabitants from Sproul Plaza. Meanwhile, similar movements
have sprung up at UCLA and UC Davis. At these campuses, occupiers have
been met with similar violent responses by police and UC
administrators. The attacks on students at UC Davis have prompted an
international outcry and calls for the resignation of UC Davis
Chancellor Linda Katehi.
The Occupy Cal Sleep-Out aims to create a safe and fun space for
students, faculty, workers, and community members to build on the
momentum of the past weeks. We will be protesting the budget cuts to
public education, as well as the brutal attempts to silence dissent by
UC administrators. The Sleep-Out will be held in solidarity with UC
Davis and UCLA students and faculty who are taking similar action this
Monday. The night will begin after the 6PM General Assembly and
include political discussions, film screenings, a concert featuring
indie-folk singer Mirah, and more.

WHAT: A one night ‘Sleep-Out’ at Sproul Plaza (UC Berkeley) including
political discussions, film screenings, and a concert featuring Mirah.
WHEN: General Assembly at 6PM; Concert at 9PM
WHERE: Sproul Plaza, UC Berkeley
Occupy Cal stands in solidarity with all fellow Occupiers at other schools in California and across the country. We support their hard work, determination, and peaceful protesting in defense of public education and against the rule of the 1% within the educational system and within society as a whole. We are all putting not only time and energy into this movement but our bodies as well. It is these bodies, many of which are sleep deprived, that bare welts, lacerations, broken bones, emotional scars, and burning and suffocating sensations from police and their chemical agents.
Occupy Cal condemns the police brutality against our brothers and sisters in these occupy movements, at UC Davis and beyond, and sends our unity and support.
Defend public education. Defend free speech and free assembly. No to
On November 15, 2011 thousands of students, faculty, and staff filled Sproul Plaza to participate in the Occupy Cal general assembly. (Crowd total estimates range from 5,000 to 10,000.) The GA discussed and voted on three proposals, all of which passed with over 80% consensus.
1) Organize a Public Debate with Jerry Brown, Marc Yudof, the Chancellor, etc. on How to Stop the Cuts and Refund Public Education at UC Berkeley in the First Week of December, 2011
2) Issue an Open Letter To the Authorities To Meet Our Demands Before Feb. 1, 2012 Or Face a Wave of Actions and Strikes (Letter Copied Below)
3) Peacefully but Firmly Reestablish Occupy Cal’s Tent Encampment (Last night, Occupy Cal succeeded in camping out. Despite multiple threats, the police did not end up raiding the camp.)
Open Letter to the State Government, UC Regents, CSU Trustees, & All Education Administrators
Quality public education is a basic human right, not a privilege. We call on you to publicly declare your support for the following:
1) Stop cuts to public education. Reverse the fee hikes, layoffs, and cuts in all levels of public education to at least their 2009 levels.
2) Refund education and public services by taxing the rich and the corporations.
3) Fully implement affirmative action to stop the re-segregation of public education. Overturn Proposition 209.
4) Respect free speech and free assembly. No use of force against protesters on school sites.
If you fail to issue such a statement, and if you fail to take concrete actions in this direction, we will begin a wave of actions, up to and including striking, beginning on February 1, 2012 to ensure that our demands are met.
We call on all California students, teachers, workers, and their organizations to sign this Open Letter and to organize and mobilize around it at their sites and in their communities.
*** We call on the UC Regents to immediately sign this Open Letter and join us on our Nov. 16 march on the banks and the State Building beginning at 1pm in San Francisco, Justin Herman Plaza. ***

Good luck, and LET’S MAKE THIS BIG!
As you may know, a General Assembly of hundreds of students,workers, faculty, and community members voted for a strike at UC Berkeley on Tuesday, November 15th. The General Assembly has also voted to organize an Open University, a space where the privatized, enclosed, militarized walls of the university no longer hold true and instead where the university spills into the outside, into the open, and into the community.
In addition to the call put out by the General Assembly for all professors and GSIs to cancel classes on Tuesday or to hold them outside, we also call on students, workers, faculty, and community members to prepare and facilitate teach-outs, workshops, and performances between 10am-2pm. The Open University is an opportunity to share ideas with the larger campus community, to form organizing spaces that your communities may need, or to draw attention to a matter that is currently overlooked.
We hope that you are excited to put on a workshop, teach-in or performance. If you would like to put one on, there is a form at http://bit.ly/occupycal where you can let us know. If you want to appear on the printed schedule of teach-outs for the day, the deadline for submission is Monday at 1PM!
We recommend that anyone hosting a session create a sign for participants to find you, we will have a table with materials for this, however it might help if you bring paint and markers to the workshop info table on Tuesday. Please come 20 minutes early!
Finally, feel free to create a facebook group or other form of publicity for your event.
As one organizer from the Philippin@ community remarked about the Open University: “Let’s shine community!”

Issued by Occupy Cal
After a mass rally and march of over 3,000 people, and repeated police assaults on the Occupy Cal encampment, the general assembly at UC Berkeley decided on the night of November 9th — with over 500 votes, 95% of the assembly — to organize and call for a strike and day of action on Tuesday, November 15. We ask that all classes be cancelled or held at Sproul Plaza.
The Open University strike is both a response to the University’s violent raid on the encampment, and an action against the defunding and privatization of public education in California.
We will strike to reassert our collective right to freely assemble, both at the University and elsewhere, so that we are able to build public spaces where we can discuss and counter the various crises affecting our communities. We stand in solidarity with the Occupy movement, and especially with Occupy Oakland, which has been, and may again soon be, repressed by the city of Oakland and the Oakland Police Department.
We will also strike to reaffirm our determination to fight for a truly public and free University, and for the refunding of all levels of public education and public services. Since the crisis of 2008, the UC Regents have accelerated their push to privatize the University, subjecting students to unsustainable levels of debt, excluding increasing numbers of students, and further resegregating public education in California. The policy of privatization also subjects workers to layoffs, work speedups, and drastic benefits reductions. All these regressive transformations are forms of structural violence, which the police enforced against the assembled students, faculty, and workers on November 9th.
We call upon all sectors of public higher education in California to take actions on Tuesday, November 15th, up to and including strike actions, and to join the mass convergences on November 16th at the UC Regents meeting and the CSU Trustees meeting. We also call upon workplaces and K-12 schools to join us, either by taking actions at their sites or by converging on UC Berkeley and helping us to open up and transform the University from which most Californians have been systematically excluded.
We do not think that property destruction is a useful tactic and we ask those who join the Open University to respect this sentiment. At the same time, we do not think that it is a good strategy to use physical force against those who might engage in such acts.
Please join us on November 15th as we stop business as usual at our University in order to open up and transform our campus, and as we reestablish the Occupy Cal encampment.
Schedule for November 15 Open University:
8am-5pm: All day Open University activities (teach-outs, workshops, public readings, installations, etc.) at Sproul Plaza and surrounding areas.
Noon: Mass convergence at Sproul Hall and formal inauguration of day-long Open University.
Noon – 2pm: Teach-outs in Sproul Plaza.
2pm: Rally against police violence and other, related forms of violence, including dispossession, privatization, and debt.
2:30pm: March to Berkeley High and Berkeley City College.

OCCUPY CAL VOTES FOR NOVEMBER 15th HIGHER EDUCATION STRIKE!
After a mass rally and march of over 3,000 people, and repeated police assaults on the encampment, the Occupy Cal general assembly decided — with over 500 votes, 95% of the assembly — to organize and call for a strike and day of action on Tuesday, November 15 in all sectors of higher education. We will strike in opposition to the cuts to public education, university privatization, and the indebting of our generation.
We also call for simultaneous solidarity actions in workplaces and K-12 schools. We will organize through daily, 5pm strike planning meetings at our encampments, followed by general assemblies.
Folks at other schools: organize your own spaces, general assemblies, etc. and strike, occupy, take over your campuses!
