British Petroleum Environmental Impact Public Hearing

I just wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow, Monday December 17th, from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the North Berkeley Senior Center there will be a Public Hearing on the Environmental Impact Report. This is regarding the proposed British Petroleum building in Strawberry Canyon just above campus.

I know everybody is in the middle of finals but having students present at the meeting is going to have a big difference. The North Berkeley Senior Center is at 1901 Hearst St. for those who dont know where it is.

Berkeley Grandmothers For The Oaks

"Berkeley Grandmothers Feed the Oak Grove Tree SittersThanksgiving Day 2007

A group of Berkeley grandmothers appeared at the UC Berkeley stadium oak grove on Thanksgiving morning to lend support and food to the tree-sitters. Last August the UC Regents constructed a chain-link barrier around the grove with the intent to starve out the tree-sit.

Just more than a week ago construction crews appeared again to add a second fence. The double barrier was crowned with barbed wire. The new fence has come with stepped-up efforts by UC Police to cut off any access to the tree sitters including all attempts to provide them with food and water. Numerous arrests have been made.

Despite the threat of arrest and a police presence, the grandmothers delivered an assortment of food and water to tree-sitters including pumpkin pie. No grandmothers were arrested.

The tree-sit is now in its 356th day. Come and help! Who will protect these trees, if not you? For more information contact Berkeley's Internet NEWS"
