Renowned singer-songwriter Country Joe McDonald will perform his highly
acclaimed Tribute to Woody Guthrie in a major fundraiser to benefit the campaign to save the Memorial Oak Grove at UC Berkeley. This is the grove where there have
been local tree-sitters for months!

"Someone needs to protect these senior citizens from being kicked out
of their home," says Country Joe. "The idea of just chopping down
trees to build things is an idea that no longer makes any sense. This
is a space well-used by creatures and people for years and years, not
too mention that the whole Memorial Stadium was probably built to honor World War veterans. The way to honor them is to leave it alone."

If you can't attend, please consider purchasing and donating your
ticket. We will get your ticket to a low-income person, and you will
have the satisfaction of sustaining this irreplaceable oak grove.
