200 farmers occupy a last plot of pristine land in California’s urban East Bay (near UC Berkeley), plant 15,000 seedlings to feed the community and disrupt plans to convert the public land into a private real estate development.
The developers already snuck in and cut 60 trees (see 2nd video) eventhough there is a lawsuit to stop the development. The struggle is still going on to preserve this land for the community.
