SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Seven people were arrested and one was injured early Thursday morning in San Francisco when police used force to evict dozens of tree-sitting protesters occupying a small park in Hayes Valley.
Occupy protesters took over the area known as the Hayes Valley Farm — which was slated for a future condo development—on June 1. The land is located between Franklin and Laguna Streets.
The protesters had built platforms in the trees and set up camp. Last Friday they were served with a trespass notice; but it wasn’t until about 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning when police moved in.
