Treesitters Launch Black Ops Unit

New, 1 comment

Jesus. Do these kids ever stop? No, no they do not. In a move cribbed from [insert name of FBI/ CIA/ war-themed movie here] a Berkeley treesitter sympathizer rigged a freaking zip line across Piedmont Avenue to shuttle supplies to those still installed in the oak grove. While the university called the act "dangerous and desperate," the treesitters still won't give up until they have a legally binding document that insures the grove will be protected "in perpetuity." Around 11 last night, said zipster finally turned himself in; the remaining treesitters are still holding down the fort, however. [ABC5]
