LRDP Tree Sit Being Attacked!
by Whitney Wilde
Monday Dec 17th, 2007 12:41 PM
Police arrived at the UCSC Tree Sit and removed things from under the trees.
Police and a clean-up crew arrived at the tree sit this morning and removed branches, lean-tos, supplies and other things from under the tree sit area. It was all put into a dumpster and hauled away. Then a street cleaner swept the parking lot. A cherry picker showed up and took one of the banners down from trees. About 30-40 protestors showed up to try to stop them. Protesters were not able to recover any items but have reclaimed the space. Police took photos of all the protesters that were there.

The clean-up has made it easier to get vehicles under the trees and it may be the first step in trying to remove the tree sitters. Protesters have been concerned that the lack of students on campus over the holidays would leave the area vulnerable.
