Albany: Early scenes from the Occupy the Farm action Saturday

Occupy the Farm activists assemble outside Albany City Hall.

Other activists were setting up closer to the site where UC and Albany are planning a development.

Across Buchanan Street was a counter-demonstration by Albany residents supporting the development project

Pro- and anti-occupy folks had some energetic exchanges of opinion.

Around 2 p.m. Occupy the Farm posted this message on its Twitter feed:

Occupy the Farm ‏@occupyfarm On the farm! Lunch at 3, dinner and GA at 7! Farming all day! Bring work gloves and friends and join us at the #gilltract

Occupy the Farm posted its thoughts on today’s action on its website.
