The "Panhandler Parking Meter" Hoax
Robert Norse and Herman Kalfin
On Tuesday 4-13, the Santa Cruz City Council passed the Downtown Association's latest mixture of Anti-Panhandling Propaganda and Anti-Homeless Forbidden Zone Expansion, masquerading as a mixture or art and charity. Past such efforts in Santa Cruz (1989: "Give a Hand not a Handout"), 1997: "Real Change Not Spare Change") were clearly transparent and mean-spirited from the getgo and failed. Attorney, photographer, and activist Herman Kalfin writes hiis own satirical take on the Rotkin-Coonerty Council's latest giveaway of public space to privatization interests.
