I get why everyone is drawn to Berkeley right now. Antifa has dug in there and people want to make a point that they don't support what they are all about. But unless the police are willing to do their job so Antifa can't roam free clubbing people with bike locks and hammers then it should be avoided. Berkeley had always been left central, that's not going to change. Probably safer to avoid the place until their law enforcement situation gets resolved.
