Among the visitors over the holiday weekend of November 10th - 12th were Mayor Emily Reilly and her husband, Robert Nahas.
The tree sitters did do shifts. Tree-sit spokeswoman Jennifer Charles said that any protesting tree-sitter is free to leave if they suspect any danger. During the protest, a few arrests were made.
Three tree-sitters left their site without incident December 13, 2008. More than a year after the start. A fourth protester left his tree about an hour after the others, and was taken into custody by UC Santa Cruz police on suspicion of trespassing. The other three tree-sitters had left before police arrived.
