BERKELEY (AP) — Student activists at the University of California, Berkeley are regrouping the day after police arrested dozens of Occupy protesters who tried to establish an encampment on campus.

Graduate student Amanda Armstrong says Occupy Cal activists are meeting Thursday evening to plan a demonstration Tuesday to protest budget cuts to higher education. It’s unclear whether they will again try to set up a camp.

Protesters are also planning to march to downtown Berkeley to protest big banks Thursday afternoon.

Campus police Capt. Margo Bennett says on Thursday morning police arrested one person who had pitched a tent near Sproul Plaza and attempted to stop an officer from taking it down.

Bennett says 39 protesters were arrested Wednesday after they clashed with police trying to dismantle a small camp next to the main plaza.
