Possible demonstrations tomorrow; prohibited items list

Berkeley Patriot has cancelled all events scheduled to take place between Sept 24-27. However, there is still a possibility of large crowds and demonstrations on and near campus starting tomorrow, September 24. South campus, especially upper Sproul Plaza, will be the most impacted.

The campus continues to plan for the safety of faculty, students, staff, and visitors and is working to minimize disruption to the occupants of nearby buildings and to those who pass through South campus. Expect pedestrian traffic on campus to be impacted and allow for additional travel time. The City of Berkeley is advising that there may also be traffic impacts near the south side of campus on Bancroft Avenue.

If you are at a demonstration and see violence, separate yourself. If you can do so safely, report it to police.

UCPD will be providing updates via Nixle.
