|Event Type||Party/Street Party|
Come celebrate one year of occupying trees on Science Hill in resistance to the UC’s plans to destroy 120 acres of forest in Upper Campus, home to the threatened Burrowing Owl, and a vital watershed area. By adding 4,500 new students, the plan will raise rents, increase traffic and strain the water supply of the Santa Cruz area. New science facilities slated for construction included expanded programs in genetic engineering and animal torture as well as high-tech military research.
The event will feature live music, food and speakers.
Since the settlement of the lawsuit between the city and the UC, grassroots community action is the only obstacle still standing in the way of the plans to destroy upper campus. Please come show your support for the Tree Sit and your opposition to this destruction! Bring friends, food (especially non perishables), water (in sealed containers), instruments, your voice and your thoughts! With the school year starting up again it’s important not to waste time in developing our resistance. Only by coming together can we make an impact on the choices that will affect all of us living in this landscape.
