Support of Occupy Oakland by Santa Cruz's Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom
HUFF, at its weekly meeting, unanimously voted to back Occupy Oakland's struggle for justice and the greater struggle for the Oakland community in terms of ending police abuse, establishing real community housing and shelter, and restoring rights to all up your way.
"HUFF commends Occupy Oakland's move to set up a Community Center on 1-28.
We denounces the police harassment, brutality, and false arrests—money that should be spent addressing homeless concerns.
We urge Occupy Oakland and the Oakland Community to closely monitor and control through public statement and public assembly the OPD whether under its current corrupt leadership or in the hands of federal receivers.
HUFF commends HUFF activists who participated in and especially those arrested by the OPD for their determination, bravery, and participation."
An additional note. In Santa Cruz homeless people and Occupy Santa Cruz are facing the same kind of repression: false arrests, bogus and disappearing charges in court, the closing off of public space, smears in the media, and threats of deeper persecution by police. Occupy Santa Cruz is likely to be issuing its own statement of support soon, if it hasn't already. Good luck with your forum on February 9th and subsequent street actions.
