Update: David got out of jail and the farmers are undaunted. They’re going back to the Gill Tract on Saturday the 18th!
I just found out today that David Grefrath was arrested two days ago when the police raided Occupy the Farm yet again. I went through and picked a few of the best of the many insightful things that David had to say during my interview with him and a few others on Nov. 5 of 2012, just a few days before UC plowed under their crops last year.
Hopefully David will be out of jail and back to the great work he does very soon.
