Nightly Meetings in front of City Hall 8:15 PM

Don't Let Your Conscience Sleep

Police know their citations and arrests will be dismissed in court under the Necessity defense.

Yet each night authorized by City Manager Martin Bernal and Mayor Mike Rotkin, police roust pregnant women and old men who have no legal shelter.

The latest tactics in sleep deprivation and homeless removal involve high intensity overhead lights, and "security" guards.

The only crime happening at City Hall is the conspiracy to deny poor people the right to sleep, not anywhere and everywhere, but somewhere at night.

In the midst of devastating depression with more and more people becoming jobless and homeless, City police are trying to drive desperation out of sight.

In the last week, police have escalated their assaults and threats, taking a 72-year-old woman to jail, repeatedly ticketing a 9 1/2 month pregnant woman, jailing another pregnant woman, initiating a smear campaign against a protester as a "child molester", stealing political signs and literature as well as chairs and a political table as "unclaimed property", and more...

Come join our march! Come on down to Peacecamp2010 each night to reclaim the public space, reclaim the public conscience, and reclaim the public purse.
