Homies for the Homeless Sleep-Out Goes into 4th Night in Santa Cruz

A persistent sleep-at-night, protest-during the day, assembly in front of Santa Cruz City Hall goes into its fourth night tonight Wednesday August 15th. Support, publicity, and solidarity are earnestly requested.
Apparently Santa Cruz Indymedia has been down through the night--at least on my computer. I got a call from the folks who spent the night at City Hall, reportedly 50 people cycled through and some spent the night. I'll be meeting with them in half an hour. To offer support call HUFF (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom) at 831-423-4833 or go to http://www.huffsantacruz.org. The protesters will probably be setting up their own website soon. Two sleeping tickets on Sunday night, and none since.

Sorry for the brevity of the report, but I hope to post more extensively later.
