Thu Aug 5 2010 (Updated 08/06/10)Second Midnight Roust Prompts Angry Response at Santa Cruz Peace Camp 2010
Thu Aug 5 2010 (Updated 08/06/10)Sheriff's Deputies Wake, Question and Photograph People at Peace Camp 2010
August 4th marked the 31st day and 32nd night of Peace Camp 2010, taking place at the Santa Cruz County Courthouse to protest the Santa Cruz Sleeping Ban, officially known as M.C. 6.36.010, and provide a safer spot for people to sleep at night.
In the afternoon, Ronee Curry, a supporter of folks on the street, brought much joy to the camp with a delivery of burritos, sandwiches and donuts. The traditional Wednesday drum circle, which for years played at the farmer's market, and then on the river levee for several weeks, migrated the weekly ritual to the courthouse lawn.
At about 11:15pm, five sheriff's deputies individually approached, awakened, interrogated, warned, and photographed homeless people sleeping at the County Courthouse. Robert Norse, a homeless rights advocate, reports that angry Peace Camp 2010 residents followed the deputies, denouncing the harassment and invasion of peoples' privacy, as they shined flashlights in the faces of sleeping people. No arrests were reported, however according to Santa Cruz Peace Camp 2010, less than 45 minutes after the action by the Sheriff's deputies, a disabled protester with a heart condition was treated by paramedics then taken by ambulance.
