One Big Earthquake and You're All Homeless: End the Sleeping Ban
"One Big Earthquake and You're All Homeless" was the hand-written message greeting travelers at Ocean and Water, one of the busiest intersections in Santa Cruz County, on Tuesday afternoon, August 10th. The message was displayed by Red and Crow, participants of the Peace Camp 2010 demonstration at the courthouse, who also displayed a sign stating "End the Sleeping Ban".

Red and Crow have been sleeping outside since their van and personal possessions were impounded. They say they have received only positive looks and feedback from passersby, speculating that people are understanding that homelessness can happen to anybody and anytime.

"If there was a big earthquake, a lot of people would instantly be homeless," said Crow. "But then the sleeping ban would be lifted," he added.
