Movement in the trees

As a fan of Cal Football, I’ve been anxiously awaiting the renovation of Memorial Stadium. The renovation plans would be a great boon to recruiting, as the current dilapidated state of things is not that impressive to visiting high school athletes. As the date approaches for the judge’s final ruling on the tree-sitter’s lawsuit, many of the protesters have started to dissipate, with only a handful of die-hards still in the trees. Yesterday morning, UC Berkeley Police began to take minor actions against these individuals, sending an arborist into the trees to dismantle excess platforms and cut down the ropes the tree-sitters are using to travel from tree to tree. It’s a minor step, as none of the tree-sitters were removed and they are already scrambling to repair their ropes, but at least it’s a positive step forward in preparation for what will hopefully be a favorable ruling.

For those that don’t know the specifics of the lawsuits, the second half of the article above has a brief summary of what’s going on.
