Aiming to halt construction to preserve a Live Oak tree in City Park, Saturday a protester sat in the tree while others rallied in support.
According to the community group City Park for Everyone Coalition, the tree is located in Couturie Forest of City Park. However, the protestor is not acting on behalf of the coalition.
This is not the first time a protestor has taken to a tree. The Advocate previously reported a man protested the golf course by living in one of the trees.
Thursday the coalition filed a federal lawsuit against FEMA and City Park to stop the $13 million golf course construction.
Below are posts and photos from the protest:
