Berkeley Police Department’s Public Information Officer Andrew Frankel emailed neighborhood crime prevention leaders with a report on last night’s violence on Telegraph Avenue, near the university (sent to Berkeleyside by Laura Menard):
More than 200 people swarmed onto Telegraph Avenue early this morning, turning a protest against fee hikes into a rampage against local merchants.
Last year, we attended a carbon footprint workshop and since then we’ve had a steadily diminishing amount that isn’t recycled or composted. Others in Berkeley seem to have done the same, which is one of the reasons why refuse revenues in the city are down.
