Support Actions for the Homeless in Fresno

by Mike Rhodes (mikerhodes [at] comcast.net)
Solidarity Action - this Saturday and Sunday.

The homeless and their advocates filed a lawsuit in Fresno today to stop the city from violating their constitutional rights. See the story and photos from the Press Conference here:

There will be a hearing before a judge Wenger on Thursday, October 19 at 10 AM at the new Federal building/courthouse at 2500 Tulare Street in downtown Fresno. The hearing will be on the 7th floor in room 3. The public is invited.

"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness." William O. Douglas, Supreme Court Justice
