Berkley seeks restraining order against animal activists

University of California at Berkley is hoping to quiet the animal rights activists that have been hosting spirited protests outside the homes of researchers during the last two months. University officials plan to seek restraining orders against the demonstrators, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.

A spokesperson for the university called the protesters “domestic terrorists.” The activists are arguing that the protests are “legal.”

Newspaper reports have claimed that rocks have been thrown through windows, flower pots smashed, and noise has continued late into the night outside the homes.
