Santa Cruz Community Supports Tree-sitters
Community Members Tour Site and Bring Supplies to Activists
The people of Santa Cruz continue to show their support for activists who have taken to the trees in opposition of UCSC's Long Range Development Plan. Santa Cruz community members have come to observe, to bring supplies and to thank the tree-sitters for taking a stand against UCSC's plan to add 4,500 new students and destroy 120 acres of forest.

Among the visitors over the holiday weekend of November 10th - 12th were Mayor Emily Reilly and her husband, Robert Nahas. After touring the liberated space under the trees, the mayor called the site "inspirational" and said that she would donate food from her bakery to the activists.

Many of UCSC's in-town neighbors have visited the site, bringing extra blankets and food, showing their children the platforms high in the redwoods or just thanking the activists for their show of opposition. UCSC shuttle drivers consistently honk their horns when they drive by the site and are greeted by cheers and waves from the activists. Read More || imc_photo.gif Photos || imc_audio.gif Audio
