Occupy the Farm, a film about the 2012 struggle to claim 20 acres of a historic 100 acre farm for community farmers in Albany, will open at the New Parkway theatre in Oakland on Tuesday, March 31st. The University of California owns the land and it has granted one acre to the community farmers working with the University's Department of Natural Resources. Another 5 to 7 acres has been alloted to University research on corn genetics, and the rest has been promised to a big box grocery store and residential development which local activists are opposing. KPFA spoke to Gil Tract farmer and activist Effie Rawlings about the farm and the movie, Occupy the Farm.
