They’re baaack! Occupy the Farmers broke into the Gill Tract research land Saturday morning to harvest the crops they had planted during their occupying spree in May. But that’s not all. In an effort to show how much food was going to waste, protestors left bolted lettuce in front of the Chancellor’s house.
A note was taped to his door, saying things like “You can’t beet us, so lettuce farm already.” Dear lord. That’s effective — we’re not getting our way, so we’re gonna leave some smelly-ass lettuce in front of the Chancellor’s door. That’s gonna change his mind.
We received an email informing us of the Farmers shenanigans — here are a few photographic gems:
