Arrest of UCSC tree-climber- Thurs 3:45pm 12/20/07

A female UCSC student, wearing a climbing harness, was arrested by two cars of cops on Thurs 12/20 at the base of one of the tree-sits. Witnessed by the Raging Grannies at 3:45pm 12/20/07.
I arrived at the tree-sit yesterday (Thurs 4pm 12/20), just after the Raging Grannies were accosted by the cops. A young woman (UCSC student) who attempted to climb one of the tree-sits was quickly arrested by two carloads of cops who arrived just before she ascended.

I didn't see anyone there as support. Has anyone considered that the cops might have set up surveillance cameras or have an ally or two in the surrounding buildings? Does anyone know who got arrested? Did the cops interrogate/intimidate her? I'm surprised there's been no community update or alert. Clearly this is the time when the cops will try things they couldn't get away with when witnesses are around.

Is anyone updating the LRDP-resitance website?

PS: The Raging Grannies compositions and songs (written to the trees and the tree-sitters re. trees and the Bio-med developers) were great!
