Update: Solstice Celebration at the Tree Sit
by Moonshiner
Saturday Dec 22nd, 2007 2:03 PM
The gathering planned on Science Hill in observation of the Winter Solstice will be taking place from three o clock today, on until dark. We plan to observe this change of the seasons with music, a potluck, poi spinning (instruction & practice) and other festivities near the trees occupied by individuals dedicated to protecting the forest of upper campus.

Those attending should be aware that there has been an increased police presence at the site over winter break, particularly since the ground support camp went into hibernation for the winter. In the past couple of days, there have been detainments and arrests of individuals allegedly providing aid to the sitters or climbing up into the trees. The "campus closure" also begins today.

We are not sure what to expect or what form our celebration will take, but we intend for it to be peaceful and music-filled.

Be the change, be prepared, stay wild and free!
