What do the Regents have planned for the future of the University of California? They say they’re struggling to give you the best education money can buy. But the evidence of conflicted interests says otherwise. On 15 November 2012, Occupy the Regents picketed the regents meeting, demanding that they stop recklessly spending money and balancing the budget on the backs of students, faculty and staff.
Is Wells Fargo finally doing the right thing? Well, maybe they just needed a little help.

This proposal is the most blatant expression of the anti-democratic nature of the current “recommendations” by the WASC accreditation committee. This is exactly how the accreditation process has been so far: top-down and secretive in its decision making and [...]
84% of all Foreclosures in San Francisco are illegal! What can a foreclosure fighter do when the courts take the side of the banks, even when they’re wrong? Contact ACCE or Occupy Bernal and watch the banks run for cover! On 22 August 2012, Kim Mitchell expected the Sheriff to come by and lock him out of his home.
