Occupy the Farm: How Local Farmers Battle to Protect their Land

The significant feature documentary, Occupy the Farm, concerns the massive direct action organized by local urban farmers to protect the last piece of prime farmland in California’s East Bay from being sold and developed.

The film follows the story of the courageous farmers as they battled the land’s owner, the University of California at Berkeley, to ensure the protection of the land forever.
