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
PEOPLE MAY DIE AS A RESULT
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
