Thu Aug 29 2013 (Updated 09/02/13)War On the Poor in Fresno: Downtown Homeless Encampments Destroyed
Thu Aug 29 2013 (Updated 09/02/13)After Displacing Hundreds of People, More Encampments to Be Evicted by City
After two days of destroying property, the City of Fresno completely dismantled and removed the homeless from several of the largest encampments in downtown Fresno on August 27. Much of the homeless people’s property was put in roll-off dumpsters by city workers where they say it can be "reclaimed."
All of the Golden State off ramp encampment (there were probably 50 people living there), Santa Clara street (where another 50 people lived), F street (about 30 people), and G street south of the Rescue Mission (another 50 people lived) are now gone. The people have moved to other encampments or they are planning on returning once the dust settles.
On Tuesday,September 3, the City of Fresno will begin again, this time destroying the encampment across Golden State Blvd, west of E street, between California and San Benito. There are at least 100 people living at that encampment, probably more because of all of the new arrivals. Help Fresno's Homeless is a new homeless advocate group that is attempting to stop these ongoing attacks against the unhoused.
