Ah, Berkeley...

At the University of California, Berkeley, the hippie heyday is long past. For more than a year now, a group of activists has been living in a grove of trees in protest of a planned fitness center expansion, despite the fact that UCB is going to plant three trees for every tree it takes down. But unlike the takeover of People’s Park in the 60s, this protest has minimal student involvement and support. Hopefully, a county judge will soon rule to have the activists removed from the trees.
