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.READ MORE: Video: Motorist Rescued From Fiery Freeway Crash In San Jose
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.
