June 22 marks the second anniversary ofDona Spring's confrontation with UC Police with officer Mitch Celaya who tries to block Dona's access to a city sidewalk only days before she died.

The attached video clip shows Donna leading an impromptu march of supporters to the barricades at the Old Oak Grove on June 22, 2008, in her attempt to resupply the tree sitters with food and water on the 228th day of the occupation to save the trees from destruction by the University of California.

I would call it Dona Spring’s finest hour but she had so many it's difficult to know.
