Add comment on:Peace Camp 2010 Relocates from County Courthouse to Santa Cruz City Hall
Red, a participant in the Peace Camp 2010 protest against the Santa Cruz Sleeping Ban, said that she and about 15 other demonstrators moved to City Hall at 3am on Wednesday, August 11th. The Peace Camp had been at the Santa Cruz County Courthouse since July 4th, and persevered through six Sheriff raids.
"We took it to the city because it's a city problem," said Red. "So we're camped outside the mayor's office." Bob, one of the demonstrators, was reportedly cited for falling asleep in violation of the city's municipal code against sleeping.
In a frank voice, Red proclaimed, "They chase us around, but there really is no place for us to go. They don't have shelter space for us. They are prosecuting us for something we can't help. That's what the Jones decision was about."
