Arcata People Project Encampment Moves to City Hall After Being Raided by Police on Wednesday!
ARCATA, HUMBOLDT COUNTY, CA - The Arcata People Project Encampment that was raided by local police on Wednesday, April 25 at the corner of 11th and D Streets in Arcata, CA is up and running again on the front lawn of Arcata City Hall. Members of the encampment met Wednesday evening at the corner of 11th and D Streets and marched through the streets of Arcata to City Hall while chanting, “Whose streets? Our Streets!” and “The People United Will Never Be Defeated!” The encampment spent its first night on the lawn of City Hall on Wednesday night and, as of
Thursday afternoon, about 50 people were at the City Hall lawn maintaining the camp.

The Arcata People Project supports an eco-sustainable campground for use by houseless people in the area.
The encampments at 11th and D Streets, and at City Hall hope to raise awareness and urge the City of
Arcata to take action. The City of Arcata must address the issue of homelessness in a serious and productive
way that allows for human rights and dignity to be maintained.
