Unrest at Cal after vandalism

Campus Groups React…

Following incidents of offensive vandalism on and around campus, members of student groups and the campus community say they are upset and hurt.

Last Wednesday evening, a poster promoting Israeli-Palestinian peace on a bus stop outside Eshleman Hall was vandalized with anti-Semitic marks and symbols. The words “Jew” and “Israel” were crossed out on the poster, which was also defaced with symbols equating the Star of David to swastikas.

Berkeley Police Department is now investigating the incident as a hate crime, which is unusual in Berkeley, said Berkeley police Officer Andrew Frankel.
