Get Out the Way: Judge OKs Booting Tree People (Again)

Posted By Krista Lane On Oct 30, 2007 @ 12:43 pm In News | Comments Disabled

A tentative ruling Monday afternoon said that whether protesters provide legal names or not, UC Berkeley is tentatively allowed to remove the tree people [1] fenced in at Memorial Stadium’s oak grove since a couple of months ago.The university and tree people have been at odds with one another since folks set up camp in the Nuclear-Free-Vegan-Save-the-Trees Zone almost a year ago.We share sentiments with folks at The Patriot [2] on this one, but Beetle’s [3] probably more realistic in suggesting nothing will happen until construction is set to begin. After all, nothing has happened since Oct. 1 [4] when the court first ordered the tree people to leave or face $1,000 fine and five days in jail.We noticed stuff at the NFVSTTZ seems to happen about once a month [5]. Hormones? Couldn’t be. The vegetables they aren’t cooking on propane tanks [6] don’t have hormones [7].And it is the University of California. Expect efficiency? Pay thousands of dollars more for it at a school that cares.While we wait for the NFVSTTZ to become Tree People-Free, at least we can reflect as deeply about the issue as the girl on her cell phone (see picture).Image Source: Ted Kwong, Daily Cal.
