ALBANY, Calif. (AP) — Police have moved in on protesters who occupied land owned by the University of California in the San Francisco Bay area city of Albany.
Television news stations report that protesters were told to leave the so-called Gill Tract on Monday morning, two days after they occupied it. It was not immediately clear whether anyone was arrested.
A call to police at the University of California, Berkeley was not immediately returned.
The protesters want to turn the land into an urban farm. UC Berkeley officials say it is used for agricultural research.
The plan is to develop it into a grocery store and senior housing.
The Oakland Tribune reports that protesters occupied adjacent land for weeks last April and May before police removed them.
