Occupy The Farm Activists Face Off Against University of California

In the San Francisco Bay Area, a group calling itself “Occupy the Farm” is bracing for a confrontation with forces from the U.C. Berkeley, which owns the tract of land on which the occupiers have set up tents and crop rows to promote food justice and urban agriculture. Brian Edwards-Tiekert has more.

Update: Occupy the Farm has released a statement saying, in part, they’re willing to break down their camp if the University puts in writing that there is enough room for both the farming activists and U.C. researchers.
