Authorities began raiding the Occupy encampment at Cal-Berkeley this morning.

Tweets from accounts associated with the protest indicate that tents and posters were being removed, along with "education materials, making students show identification," according to @caloccupation.

Two have reportedly been arrested in the raid, along with the removal of about 15 tents.

The encampment had only been re-established on Tuesday, following a previous police raid. A general strike was organized, with teach outs and other protests, in an attempt to move back into campus space and reorganize an encampment.
