ALBANY, Calif. —
The last two of nine protesters arrested last month during an occupation of UC Berkeley land will also not face charges.
Alameda County prosecutors said on Tuesday they have decided not to file charges against the two women, who were arrested on suspicion of trespassing.
Prosecutors have previously said the other seven Occupy the Farm protesters arrested on May 14 will also not face charges. A spokesman for the district attorney's office said at the time the decision was in the interest of justice.
Those seven protesters were arrested on suspicion of unlawful assembly. The arrests at the 10-acre plot in Albany owned by the university came after a three-week standoff.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
