Occupy Santa Cruz Remains Committed Despite Raids by County Sheriffs and City Injunction
Authorities Continue Raids On Occupy Santa Cruz
On Saturday, November 12th at 5 AM, 15 - 20 deputies with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department swarmed the courthouse steps occupation location of Occupy Santa Cruz, blocking it off with police tape from the lower camp in San Lorenzo Park. The deputies reinforced the County’s unofficial but repeated written notice that “lodging” was prohibited, and indicated any tents not removed voluntarily would be confiscated. A few tents were voluntarily moved, but a dozen tents and all personal property in them were taken by the sheriffs.

Although this action stopped at the courthouse steps, sheriffs indicated that if the geodesic dome, food services, medical station and personal tents were still there Monday, they would be forcibly removed as well. On the night of November 11th, 15 lodging tickets were issued and two people were arrested. The City of Santa Cruz is also pursuing an injunction against the encampment at San Lorenzo River Park Benchlands for being a “public nuisance.”
