200 urban farmers occupy the last piece of farmland in the urban East Bay. They plant 15,000 seedlings in hopes of stopping a real estate development. Their tent village lasts for three weeks and then riot police evict them. But, their two acres of crops survive, and this direct action successfully alters the fate of the farmland. Declared one farmer, “This is Occupy 2.0.”
