Occupy Santa Cruz Returns with Tent Mob, So Do Police
Alex Darocy
On July 6th, community members involved with Occupy Santa Cruz carried tents, snacks, and balloons downtown for a roving "Tent Mob" street party. According to the event announcement, the group wouldn't be, "re-camping in the park for a month," or, "occupying a bank building." They planned instead to claim the Public Commons temporarily, because they feel as private space increases, access to public space is decreasing and, "there are no places outside for houseless folks to sleep legally." After spending some time together in Laurel Park, the location of the first Occupy Santa Cruz general assembly, they took the roving Tent Mob to Pacific Avenue and spent time among the street musicians, movie goers, and assorted other Friday evening revelers, where they hoped to, "demonstrate our inalienable rights.. and have some fun doing it."
