Title: Downtown Protest Against the Sleeping Ban Injunction and Law
START DATE: Saturday June 06
TIME: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location Details:
On the sidewalk near Bunny's Shoes in downtown Santa Cruz at 1350
Pacific Ave.and its sister store across the street
Event Type: Protest
Contact Name Robert Norse
Email Address rnorse3 [at] hotmail.com
Phone Number 831-423-4833
Address 309 Cedar PMB #14B Santa Cruz, CA 95060
Sidewalk demo of homeless folks, their supporters, and those outraged
at last Friday's court decision making sleeping downtown a jailing
crime for Anna Richardson and Miguel de Leon.

This Injunction was sought by the SCPD, by city employees, and by four
businesses downtown including Bunny's Shoes.

The impact of the decision expands far beyond these two performers,
since there are 1500-2000 homeless in Santa Cruz of whom less than 10%
have shelter throughout the summer.

Homeless people face $97 citations, police harassment, theft and
destruction of their property, and discrimination.

It is piling absurdity upon cruelty to ban sleeping downtown on pain
of jail, yet allow no legal place for homeless people to sleep. MC
6.36.010 makes all nighttime sleeping illegal outside on public
property already; the Injunction adds a jail penalty to the downtown
area for this homeless couple.

Activists will also be presenting a Pledge on Human Rights and Harmony
for merchants to display in their windows or in their stores in
soldarity if they choose.

The pledge reads: "This business does not discriminate. We support
Human Rights for the homeless community. In particular, the right to
sleep at night--not anywhere and everywhere--but somewhere."

Educational protest was recently successful in restoring a positive
relationship between Jack's (the hamburger joint next to the
Nickelodeon) and the homeless community after numerous complaints of
discrimination there.

Solidarity in resisting the police attack on the Farmer's Market Drum
Circle has kept it going every Wednesday.

The Sleeping Ban was abolished in Los Angeles, San Diego, Richmond,
and Laguna Beach. If redneck and yuppie communities can act reasonably
towards the homeless, Santa Cruz can be persuaded to do the same.

Since the Downtown Association and their proxies on City Council
(Robinson, Coonerty, Matthews) has been leading the crackdown on the
homeless, it's time to "crack back".

Don't crack up, get crackin' ! Come on down and support real change
downtown.

I don't live anywhere near Santa Cruz.

My solution would be to set up a tent city for them like was done in the
last depression. That was fine then, but today that pragmatic
solution would offend your "sensitivities."

I don't live there either. All I know is what that guy sends me.

There have been tent cities in other places. You can google it. A
few years ago in Santa Cruz there was Camp Paradise. All the tent
cities seem to be shut down by the Police.

There are some "sensitivities" involved I suppose, like Constitutional
rights.

I was just passing by and have to note that, being in the US Army for 26
years, and having put up tent cities, that there seems to be a political
problem, not an actual physical problem. Going back to the 1906 earthquake,
in San Francisco, the US Army put up more than 6000 tents on the Presidio
grounds, and even in the 1990s, put up even more at Camp Chafee to house the
Mariel boatlift people.

The real problem is the political view that it would show the failure of the
current administration (and I am apolitical) or even the previous
administration, but the pics would be today, not yesterday, so the current
administration gets blamed anyway.

The US Army could put up 6000 (whatever) tents, very easily. The real
problem is who is going to pay for this, and who is going to get the blame
when the reporters converge on the camps and interview the people. Now the
homeless are hidden away, and I think that there are a lot of people who
like it that way.

You have to remember the saying, "No good deed goes unpunished," and I would
think that anyone who sponsors an encampment for homeless people is going to
get a lot of criticism from everyone, and very few thanks.

Bums and no-loads are attracted to California because:

1. It's a welfare state with leftist- politicians getting elected by the
masses of uneducated dunces.
2. The weather allows almost 365 (Southern CA) days of mild winters and warm
periods to survive in a tent.

Hawaii had the same problem but since Hawaii is mostly an Asian operated and
racist-based state, they would run-out anyone that isn't Native Bum Hawaiian
from the homeless areas. Hence, most just stay in CA.

Dismantle the illegal immigration problems, liberal politicians, no-load
policies and political correctness and the homeless problem would shrink.

Sidewalk demo of homeless folks, their supporters, and those outraged
at last Friday's court decision making sleeping downtown a jailing
crime for Anna Richardson and Miguel de Leon.
This Injunction was sought by the SCPD, by city employees, and by four
businesses downtown including Bunny's Shoes.
The impact of the decision expands far beyond these two performers,
since there are 1500-2000 homeless in Santa Cruz of whom less than 10%
have shelter throughout the summer.
Homeless people face $97 citations, police harassment, theft and
destruction of their property, and discrimination.
It is piling absurdity upon cruelty to ban sleeping downtown on pain
of jail, yet allow no legal place for homeless people to sleep. MC
6.36.010 makes all nighttime sleeping illegal outside on public
property already; the Injunction adds a jail penalty to the downtown
area for this homeless couple.
Activists will also be presenting a Pledge on Human Rights and Harmony
for merchants to display in their windows or in their stores in
soldarity if they choose.
The pledge reads: "This business does not discriminate. We support
Human Rights for the homeless community. In particular, the right to
sleep at night--not anywhere and everywhere--but somewhere."
Educational protest was recently successful in restoring a positive
relationship between Jack's (the hamburger joint next to the
Nickelodeon) and the homeless community after numerous complaints of
discrimination there.
Solidarity in resisting the police attack on the Farmer's Market Drum
Circle has kept it going every Wednesday.
The Sleeping Ban was abolished in Los Angeles, San Diego, Richmond,
and Laguna Beach. If redneck and yuppie communities can act reasonably
towards the homeless, Santa Cruz can be persuaded to do the same.
Since the Downtown Association and their proxies on City Council
(Robinson, Coonerty, Matthews) has been leading the crackdown on the
homeless, it's time to "crack back".
Don't crack up, get crackin' ! Come on down and support real change
downtown.

Why don't you Santa Cruz lefties distribute the homeless to live in your
homes?
Can't do that, you must take away their gun rights first, stick them all in
jail then promise to raise taxes on the rich. Since the rich-leftist have
off shore tax havens or good crooked Law agencies to get out of those
increased taxes, they will pass the buck to the middle-class.

Isn't this the way it supposed to work? Sort of like Al Gore's mansions and
private jet travels to talk about reducing Global CO2 emissions. Liberals
never walk the talk, liberalism is a means of fascist control via taxes,
laws and policies.

These leftist would call the police on anyone who didn't look wealthy (or
fruity) walking thru their exclusive guarded gated communities, they sure
won't let the homeless stay near them.
