On November 20th, UC Berkeley completed the construction of a second barbed-wire fence around the Memorial Oak Grove enclosing approximately ten tree-sitters inside. The fencing has cost an estimated $115,000. UCB have announced they can fine or arrest anyone acting "in concert" with the tree-sitters.
