Occupy seizes land from UC Berkeley

According to KGO TV, San Francisco,

A group of activists says it has taken over a tract of University of California at Berkeley-owned land on the Berkeley-Albany border and plans to plant seedlings and convert the land to agricultural use.

The group Occupy the Farm took over the property known as the Gill Tract, at San Pablo Avenue and Marin Avenue, this afternoon, and plans to stay overnight, group members said.

Activists described the property as “the last remaining 10 acres of Class I agricultural soil in the urbanized East Bay,” and noted that the university plans to sell the property for a retail development.

University officials and Albany police have not yet responded to calls seeking comment.

Private property isn’t private if Occupy wants it.  If they want it, it is their right to take it.

    When no one owns property everyone will be poor together. Morons.

    • Yup. Perhaps that’s the point. Everyone equally poor. That’s “fairness” for you.
