After 13 months, Tree Sit Ends
by Long Range Resistance
Saturday Dec 13th, 2008 11:33 AM
Press Conference at Base of Campus
2pm Today!
Santa Cruz, CA -- After 13 months as a symbol of community resistance to UCSC's destructive expansion plans, the Science Hill Tree Sit ended around 9 am this morning. The end of the Tree Sit was peaceful and no one was hurt, though one person was arrested. The Tree Sit was one aspect of a larger movement opposed to the University's plans to destroy 120 acres of campus, and that resistance will continue. An official Tree Sit statement will be made at 2pm at the main entrance of UCSC Campus. Tree Sitters and Tree Sit supporters will be available for questions.
