More Fences, More Tickets, Less Winter Shelter, More Cruelty - Community Survival Camp Forming - Thursday, November 15, 2018

Santa Cruz Downtown Post Office, Front and Water Streets at 4:00 PM

The River Street Campground starts to close on this day.

Santa Cruz awarded at least $3.3 million in grants for homeless

programs...Closes the River Street Campground and fences off our public



While the Federal Court system has ruled that criminalizing sleeping is

cruel and unusual punishment and violates the Constitution, here in

Santa Cruz, the City plans to close its only legal campground just

before the winter. Concurrently, it has fenced off the nearest parks and

bathrooms indefinitely. People may die as a result.

Please join us for a peaceful night's sleep while celebrating the

constitution and supporting the human right to sleep. Everyone is

welcome, whether you have a home or not.

The City closes the River Street Campground at the same time it fenced

off San Lorenzo and Grant Street Parks, closed its toilets and posted

signs saying, "PARK CLOSED Until further notice for - Focused

Maintenance - Public Safety".

Bring your tent, blankets, sleeping bags, and tarps

- Call 1-800-884-1136 to get involved

Join us in establishing a safe camp for those who have no place out of

the rain.
