Not so, they worked with the college republicans to facilitate their event. They rightfully allowed other students to peacefully protest the event. It outside protesters who came in and made it violent. UCB sent in campus security and called in police to stop it. You can't blame this on UCB.

Yes they worked with college republicans but did nothing to stop the protests and their silence is their compliance. Who controls the campus? The campus police did nothing.

Simply not true. UCB Immediately responded to the violence to protect both those in attendance at the conservative forum and those at the protest. UCB has condemned the violence in the strongest way. I am a staunch conservative and I have little use for UCB, but they are not in the wrong on this.

ley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks sent out this message today in response to the events of last night:

UC Berkeley condemns in the strongest possible terms the actions of individuals who invaded the campus, infiltrated a crowd of peaceful students and used violent tactics to close down the event. We deeply regret that the violence unleashed by this group undermined the First Amendment rights of the speaker as well as those who came to lawfully assemble and protest his presence.

The university went to extraordinary lengths to facilitate planning and preparation for this event, working in close concert with the Berkeley College Republicans. Dozens of police officers were brought in from UC campuses across the state. Numerous crowd-control measures were put in place. But, we could not plan for the unprecedented. Last night the Berkeley campus was invaded by more than 100 armed individuals clad all in black who utilized paramilitary tactics to engage in violent, destructive behavior designed to shut the event down. At that point the University of California Police Department concluded that the speaker had to be evacuated from campus for his own safety, thereby bringing the event to an end.

For the campus police, the primary objective is always the safety and well-being of our students and the public. That is what informs their strategies and tactics. In that context we are relieved that, as of now, there have been no reports of serious injuries.

We are proud of our history and legacy as the home of the Free Speech Movement. While we have made clear our belief that the inflaming rhetoric and provocations of Mr. Yiannopoulos were in marked opposition to the basic values of the university, we respected his right to come to campus and speak once he was invited to do so by a legitimate student group. The violence last night was an attack on the fundamental values of the university, which stands for and helps to maintain and nurture open inquiry and an inclusive civil society, the bedrock of a genuinely democratic nation. We are now, and will remain in the future, completely committed http://news.berkeley.edu/2017/02/02/campus-condemns-violence-defends-free-speech/

...to free speech as essential to our educational mission and a vital component of our identity at UC Berkeley.

And the UCB College Republicans put out this statement thanking the UCB administration and campus security. They rightly blame the protesters and not the university.

"The Free Speech Movement is dead. Today, the Berkeley College Republicans' constitutional right to free speech was silenced by criminals and thugs seeking to cancel Milo Yiannopoulos' tour. Their success is a defeat for civilized society and the free exchange of ideas on college campuses across America. We would like to thank UCPD and the university administration for doing all they could to ensure the safety of everyone involved. It is tragic that the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement is also its final resting place."
