New Developments at U.C. Berkeley's Memorial Oak Grove

Some Berkeley Tree Sitters Leave Trees
On June 29th, Berkeley community members, and supporters of the tree-sit at U.C. Berkeley's Memorial Oak Grove attempted to re-supply the tree-sitters with food and medical supplies. The U.C. police, however, blocked all attempts to provide food and medication.

On July 1st, two tree-sitters in a redwood tree negotiated with the UC police, and arranged to be taken into custody with the provision that they would be taken to Berkeley City jail (not Santa Rita) and that they would be cited and released. Another tree sitter, (Dumpster Muffin, the woman who had stood on the small platform during the recent crane incident) experienced medical difficulties. She requested that a doctor she trusted be allowed to meet her at the bottom of the tree when she descended to the ground. She also requested that a local videographer, LA Wood, be allowed inside the grove to film the event. The request was partially granted ; only Wood was allowed to enter, but it was promised that medical attention would be provided if Muffin looked sick. When Muffin climbed down from the tree, she was grabbed by the police, and although she collapsed a couple of times, no medical attention was allowed to reach her.
