Winter Break at the UCSC Tree-sit
Protesters End Occupation of Space Under the Trees
December 7th marked the first month of the tree-sit on Science Hill at UC Santa Cruz to protest campus expansion.

Connections have been made with off-campus community members, many forums have been held and more are planned, and a campus coalition of students, graduate students, and faculty is forming to plan other modes of resistance outside of the tree-sit.
