Did you know that UC-Santa Cruz has its own set of tree-sitters? Yeah, neither did we. (Some students at the UCSC campus live in the trees, foliage, shrubbery, and Elf Land year round.) It seems the protest has been going on since November 2007. Anyway, this set of protesters, not to be confused with this set of protesters, who are living in a redwood grove "to oppose university growth plans," fear that UC authorities will use force to extract the them the same a la Cal. Jim Burns, a UCSC spokesman, said that the university couldn't care less. (SJ Merc)
