homage to the free speech movement. >> reporter: occupy oakland is back. there's a few tents that went up. the at -- the tents will likely stay here all night long. we want to show you a view of the crowd here. we had an early estimate of 5,000 people. i just talked to sheriff deputies that put the crowd more like 5,000 and there are still several thousand people here gathered at the plaza. no matter what the number and the actual turn out. the turn out here tonight has been impressive. >> this is the largest turn out that uc berkeley has had in decades. >> reporter: it's certainly the largest occupy demonstration on the berkeley campus. while other occupy protests focused on wall street bail outs, this one targeted the
sprawling cost of a college education. >> i'm concerned about the fee hikes as well. >> reporter: students read a message from the uc chancellor. >> we're all gathered here and anger. >> at the state. >> at the state. >> reporter: the reason police action to shut down encampments in oakland, new york and other cities across the country seemed to have galvanized this movement, at least for now. >> there's really just right now, i think coast to coast this kind of mass energy and commitment to these occupations that is really inspiring. >> earlier hundreds of students marched through the streets of berkeley then on to the cal campus. they marched past other students who attended classes outside in a show of solidarity for today's day of action. >> i knew that cal had a reputation for protests but i
didn't expect anything like this. >> reporter: one of the big questions within the movement is where does it go from here. >> i'm concerned, i've seen a will the of different demands online. i'm concerned that the movement is becoming very splintered and there's too many demands going on. >> back again live, you can see several officers gathered together here. we've seen a number of alameda county sheriff's deputies spread out around this area. as you can see they are not wearing helmets they are not carrying tear gas and they are not carrying shields. so they tell me they are not planning on moving in on the tents at all tonight. and we'll have to wait and see what happens tomorrow. again the tents have been set up in the grassy area that's on the other side of the steps here at sprawl hall. they are sitting there and will probably stay there all night long. we'll have to wait and see how
police respond tomorrow. ken wayne. the protesters at tonight's demonstrations are also upset with police for their use of force during this campus protest last wednesday. many feel that it was oppressive. within the past hour former u.s. labor secretary robert rice spoke to the crowd from the steps of sprawl hall. he invoked the name of mario savio one of the heros of berkeley's free speech movement. rice said savio's message is more important today than before. >> when you think that money is speech and corporations are people, they become extraordinarily important to protect the rights of ordinary citizen, of students of everybody else who doesn't have the money. >> reporter: rice wept on --
>> rice went on to say that because free speech is very expensive often people don't go on. campus police at uc berkeley shot a man today after university officials say he pulled out a gun. an alert staff member is being credited for first spotting the gun in the man's backpack. amber lee is live where the shooting happened. >> reporter: i just got off with campus police about 10 minutes ago, they tell me that the man shot at the haas school is in the hospital. university officials tell us that it does not appear that he
has any ties to the occupy cal protest. he is a 30-year-old man and had surgery tonight. the sight and sound of an ambulance carrying away a man that was shot by campus police seemed to startle students. a university staff noticed the man when she got into the elevator with him. she noticed a gun in his backpack. he got off on the third floor and went into the lab, he reported him. >> i was on the phone, i heard shot and screaming. >> i heard someone say, drop the gun, and then i heard a shooting after that. >> i didn't move for a few seconds because i didn't want any stray bullets to get me. i figured it's better just to stay low. >> reporter: police acknowledged that the man pulled a gun out of his backpack and threatened the
officers. >> the officers challenged the individual to drop the firearm, he did not. for the fear of their own safety they were forced to have to fire upon the individual. >> reporter: the police chief told me only one officer shot at the man but declined to say how many times. the police also say they are still trying to determine if the man has tied to the university. reporting live at the haas school of business, amber lee, ktvu channel 2 news. the haas business school was evacuated after the shooting. take a look at this text alert it was sent to students shortly afterward. you can see it tells them a suspect is in custody and advises students to stay away from the area. for the first time in more than a month oakland's frank agawa plaza is unoccupied. we decided to check on the plaza late this afternoon as you can see here we found there was almost no one there. there is a sign though that says it is closed for cleaning. the city is planning to resaw the grass area at a cost of about $30,000. oak ran says the occupy protesters -- oakland says the
occupy protesters can use the plaza for speeches and rallies but they cannot set up tents there. we notice had the a kaiser permanente office building is boarded up. the building is across from snow park where a few occupies have set up a second camp. people there said they're worried that police will come and break up their encampment. some three dozen officers are there and told ktvu they are monitoring the situation. the park in manhattan that has been home to the occupy wall street movement is free of tents tonight. new york police cleared out the campers this morning. coming up at 10:30, the legal back and forth over enforcing a ban on camping there and where the movement goes from here. and stay with ktvu for coverage. new at 10:00, a vote by the santa clara city council moves the 49ers one big step closer

redevelopment money and borrowing 6 million from the 49ers to fund the prep work. >> we're 100% committed to having the stadium at santa clara and we believe that the city has responded as well. >> reporter: this is all work that the voters approved when a ballot measure to build the stadium passed by a large margin last year. still, opponents are not giving up. >> we're concerned that this is going to be the beginning of a cycle of continued endebtedness for santa clara agencies. note that we still have no plans from the 49ers of how much money they're willing to pay for a stadium. >> reporter: that financing plan and perhaps a decision whether the 49ers plan to share the stadium with the oakland raiders are expected to come up for a public hearing early next month. live in santa clara, lloyd lacuesta, ktvu channel 2 news. tonight on our facebook wall we asked about building a new stadium in santa clara. ben writes they're still in the bay area and will always be the

of them. measure h would allow the city council to appoint the city attorney rather than having voters elect that person. it is being rejected by an overwhelming margin. measure i calls for an $80 a year property tax. the money would be used for oakland's public safety issues as well as park, libraries and infrastructure. mayor jean quan sent an e-mail tonight saying its failure means many services will be hurt and police will have a hard time replacing officers who retire. measure j would extend the payments for a retired police officer. measure j needs a simple majority to pass and it too is failing right now. young kids targeted by adult thief, the warning from police about crimes on school campuses. what the thieves are after and how they're getting away with it. back here in 10 minutes on tomorrow's forecast. we have fog to talk about. i'll pinpoint where that's going to be then i'll show you
