2 Occupy the Farm protesters won’t face charges

BERKELEY — Alameda County prosecutors have decided not to file charges against two women arrested on suspicion of trespassing during the Occupy the Farm protest on UC Berkeley-owned land in Albany, officials said Tuesday.

Campus police officers arrested nine protesters May 14 on the university’s 10-acre Gill Tract near Marin and San Pablo avenues after a three-week standoff.

Last week, prosecutors opted not to file charges against seven of the protesters, who had been arrested on suspicion of unlawful assembly. The two other protesters arrested by police will not be charged with trespassing, said Teresa Drenick, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney’s Office.
