From SF Gate:
(07-02) 13:12 PDT BERKELEY -- Three of the Memorial Stadium tree-sitters left their perches today and Tuesday night, leaving just four protesters making a stand against UC's plans to build an athletic training center in the grove, UC Berkeley officials said.
The three protesters, who have not been identified, climbed down from the trees late Tuesday night, campus spokesman Dan Mogulof said. One of them was arrested by campus police while the other two climbed up a different tree, he said.
After talking to police this morning, the two came down. All three have been charged with trespassing and violating a court order to abandon the protest in the grove, Mogulof said.
The protesters' reasons for leaving the 19-month-old tree-sit were not immediately available.
The fate of the oak grove hinges on the outcome of a lawsuit brought by the City of Berkeley, the Panoramic Hill Association and oak tree supporters. A judge is expected to rule in the next few weeks whether the university can go ahead with plans to build a $140 million sports training center next to the stadium.
