Dutton Hall at UC Davis Occupied by Anti-Israel activists

Today, Dutton hall at U.C. Davis was "occupied"  by anti-Israel activists, using banners and tactics recycled from earlier protests. Yawn.  Its just a very public tantrum following the defeat of an Israel divestment initiative at Davis.

The photos are just charming.

This posting from the comments section is particularly interesting

I walked by and saw some interesting signs pasted on the building's windows.
One said "Sharia Law".
Wishful thinking I suppose.

A university official told me that this was organized by outsiders, not students. 

More details as they become available....

Yeah, the activists are obnoxious extremists trying to coopt every left wing/cultural cause. Luckily, this means that they're not taken very seriously. Also, for the past couple of years someone's taken over Dutton or Mrak once a month, so it's barely noticed by the large part of the student body that is in school to take classes...
