Add comment on:Lights, Camera, Tickets! Klieg Lights at City Hall--Throwing Light on the Shelter Shortage
To combat increasing police and city pressure against PeaceCamp2010 at City Hall and to halt ticketing of homeless people throughout Santa Cruz for the "crime" of sleeping, homeless folks and their supporters will be going to the Homeless Services Center Board of Directors meeting today at 5:30 PM to demand the Board issue a statement that there is NO shelter available except after a 4-6 week waiting period for the rest of the summer. As police "spotlight" the homeless at night with new sleep depriving klieglights, homeless activists hope to spotlight the real situation for all to see.
