Media reports about a group of protesters occupying UC Berkeley's Durant Hall are trickling in. 

The protesters have reportedly occupied the building in support of the March 4 statewide Day of Action against the budget cuts to public education. 

The Daily Planet has not been able to confirm the reports yet.  

A group of students occupied Wheeler Hall last November to protest fee hikes, lay offs and cuts to public education. 

Students have been organizing a "Rolling University" event this week, similar to the Open University week held last year, where discussions, forums, potlucks and performances are being held. 

A dance party was scheduled for 10 p.m. today at Upper Sproul Plaza.
