Teach-ins under way on UC Berkeley campus

Teach-ins under way at UC Berkeley as part of anti-Wall Street protest By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Dozens of students and faculty at the University of California, Berkeley have gathered for teach-ins at an outdoor plaza as part of a campus strike to protest banks and budget cuts.

The protesters also plan to try again on Tuesday to establish an encampment on campus.

An effort to erect a camp last week was met by baton-wielding police. Forty people were arrested, as the university sought to uphold a campus ban on camping.

Protesters also plan a march and rally that is expected to include Occupy Oakland activists whose encampment was taken down on Monday.
