At the Berkeley Daily Planet, "Flash: UC Berkeley Police Arrest Two Protesters, Order Others Off Gill Tract."
And at the Oakland Tribune, "UC police clear out "Occupy the Farm" protesters in Albany."
ALBANY -- University of California police arrested protesters still occupying the university-owned Gill Tract on Monday morning, ending a standoff of sorts that had stretched out for weeks.RELATED: From Zombie, "Meet the New Farm, Same as the Old Farm? Occupy Seizes Berkeley’s “Gill Tract”."
Officers clad in riot gear and brandishing batons began staging early in the morning near the 10-acre site near San Pablo and Marin avenues that is used for research by UC Berkeley's College of Natural Resources.
Nine protesters were arrested and several more left the parcel of land voluntarily a short time after 6:15 a.m., when UCPD officers moved onto the field and issued a dispersal order.
An assembly of police from different UC campuses along with Albany police and the Alameda County Sheriff's Office totaling upwards of 100 officers encountered fewer than 10 protesters on the field, most of whom were still sleeping. By 9 a.m., the remaining encampment was cleared.
All except a young man who is sitting in a tree near the tract and refuses to come down.
Of the nine arrested, two were detained for sleeping overnight on the actual tract and seven were arrested outside the fence line on suspicion of unlawful assembly. They were taken to Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, said UC Berkeley police Lt. Eric Tejada.
University spokesman Dan Mogulof said police gave the protesters "ample warning and notice that if they left voluntarily, they would not be arrested."
