I hope this group is aware the University of Kaboomkeley (Atom Bomb) is already had a histor of Mass Tree cutting in the Berkeley area alone. First, the last coastal Live Oaks Grove by the Stadium which was a living monument to the 92 Californian WW1 veterans who lost their lives (considered a Hate Crime against the Veterans). Then the removal of 18,000 trees in the Berkeley hills which many were not even on their property but in the East Bay Regional Park. And now the University with FEMA wants clear Strawberry canyon under Fire protection so that they can build a 100 room student dormitory- Outrageous. I'll be there but if you think I'm paying 25 dollars you are crazy.
