Berkeley Memorial Oak Grove
Voices from the Oak Grove


Berkeley Memorial Oak Grove Video Shorts are part of a series of YouTube publications that were posted during the 644-day tree-sit at the Memorial Oak Grove on the UC Berkeley campus, beginning on December 2, 2006. These images and voices are all that remain of the Memorial Oak Grove that the UC Regents destroyed.

From the first days of the nation's longest urban tree-sit, the UC Berkeley Police were determined to criminalize this enormous free speech action. As a consequence, UCB entangled over 200 participants (mostly young people) in the legal system and sent some of them to the county jail. The frequent brutality experienced by these tree activists at the hands of the campus police was ultimately directed at the Oak Grove itself. Today, only a few trees remain where the majestic Memorial Oak Grove once stood. These Berkeley community actions serve as a reminder of what is in store for those who dare to stand-up against environmental injustices and the corporate forces (axes) of the University of California Regents.

This is also a tribute to the hundreds of community members who stood up to voice their concerns and who gave their support to the tree-sitters and the oaks.
