UC Regents vote to cut oaks
UC Regents voted tonight to move forward with a high tech gym in the location that isnow Memorial grove in Berkeley CA. This will entail cutting all of the trees there. A tree sit has been set up to stop this.
Come support the treesit in Berkeley. Please stop by even if it is just for a few minutes. Food, supplies and monetary donations are always apreciate. Today at 7:00 p.m. the UC Regents voted to go on with the project and cut the trees. People set up a treesit, Suturday December 2, to protect the ancient Oak tees in Berkeley. The University of California plans to cut the trees for space for a new gym. Alternatives exist and 200 year old trees are irreplaceable. Some of the trees have been here much longer than the city of Berkley. The treesitters can always use visits-24 hours a day. The site http://www.saveoaks.com has lots o background information and a map to the location. Basicaly it is in front of Memorial Stadium on the west side of campus, just north of Internatioal House. The police have been by several times but no action has been taken against th sit yet. Today was a big game between Stanford and UC and the treesit wa set up to let the tens of thousands of fans know what is planned. Reactions were mixed but many people supported the trees
