On late Wednesday afternoon, events at UCB went to warp speed.   Police moved in and arrests were made.   Protesters assert that videos that showed Police brutality are available online.   Things had calmed down by early evening.   Some protesters asserted that the police were not wearing their badges during the arrests.

According to reports on KCBS news radio, tents were removed and more arrests were made about midnight.
