Regents continue to meet and students continue to protest today at UC.

The New York Times’ Bay Area blog has a good round-up today of the issues surrounding the fee increases and reactions to them.

There’s also a photo slideshow of the ongoing on-campus protests.

Update Students occupied Wheeler Hall on the campus this morning. Chancellor Robert Birgeneau emailed all faculty, staff and students the following message:

The campus police are working to resolve a protest action that is occurring in Wheeler Hall.  Staff, faculty and students who would normally be working in Wheeler Hall  are asked to remain out of the building until further notice.  Employees who can contact their supervisors should talk to them if possible to determine whether telecommuting or relocation to another work area is an option.  Those in the building right now are advised to leave until the situation has been resolved.
