Public BBQ and open forum discussion on organizing resistance to park closures, increased police power, and attacks on homelessness in Downtown Modesto.

Please join us on Saturday, July 9th, 12 Noon, at Paperboy Park, aka Rose Garden Park, at 15th and I Street. There, renters, homeless, and home owners will gather and rally against the recent closure of the park and it's "privatization." A BBQ will be held and there will be a forum to discuss organizing resistance to park closures and the criminalization of homelessness in the Downtown area.

Recently, local politicians and business interests have proposed that public parks be heavily policed by private security, the sharing of food be made a crime, and surveillance cameras be installed in local parks. These assaults on human freedom and movement affect us all: whether we are homeless or paying rent or a mortgage. None of us gain anything when the government gains more power, the police are allowed more control over our actions and movement, when we lose access to public spaces, and when everyday activities such as sharing are made into criminal acts.

Join us in the park. To eat, plan, and meet each other.
