Thursday June 19, 2008 - 06:00:00 PM

6 p.m. Thursday--UC police, using a cherry-picker, have removed one tree-sitter this evening, and have pushed back all supporters and the public from the area surrounding the Memorial Stadium oak grove.  

They have extended the barriers around the grove by placing additional barricades to the median of Piedmont Avenue. 

UC has cut all food and water supply lines to the tree-sitters, and UC police chief Victoria Harrison went up in a crane to try to talk a protester down.
