Occupy the Farm at UC Berkley

Here’s an interesting article about a movement to save a valuable tract of farmland in the Bay area.

I’d like to think that universities would be at the forefront of the urban farming / food security movement  . . . They should be a place for critical thought, questioning authority, exploring and challenging the edges of society. 

Instead it seems universities, like all our other major public institutions, are falling victims to corporate coups.

Have a read and see what you think.
