Tree-Sitters Speak Out



Good get by the Oakland Tribune this morning: an interview with three of the people who sat in the Memorial Stadium oak grove for months, delaying UC Berkeley's efforts to cut down the trees and make way for the new sports training center. The three tree-sitters gave way to bickering sometimes, but mostly read books, played tag, and practiced yoga. When they were hauled off to Santa Rita for booking, a guard played a tape of a chainsaw revving up, but the tree-sitters took it in stride. They now live together in a group house in Albany.
