Occupy the Farm
Occupy activists who set up an encampment and planted crops on land owned by the University of California, Berkeley said they will only leave if officials meet certain demands.
Occupy activists who broke locks and set up an encampment on University of California, Berkeley agricultural research land in Albany have refused to leave.
A Saturday deadline for protestors to agree to leave a tract of University of California at Berkeley-owned land voluntarily has passed without a response and university officials were weighing their options.
About 40 activists who are part of a group calling itself “Occupy the Farm” are planting 15,000 seedlings on a 10-acre plot of land in Albany that is owned by the University of California at Berkeley, a spokesman for the group said Monday.
