Sit Down Against the Sit/Lie Ban!

Location Details
In font of Walgreens on Alvarado Street in Downtown Monterey.
416 Alvarado St, Monterey, California 93940
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorDirect Action Monterey Network
On Friday, April 3rd from 4pm-6pm we will once again sit down on the sidewalk on Alvarado Street in violation of Monterey's Sit/Lie Ban. If they really want to have such a discriminatory law (which clearly targets homeless people and travelers), then let's clog their bureaucracies with lots of citations! There are no fines if you don't do it again for 30 days.

At previous demonstrations no participants were cited, a clear sign of selective enforcement. We will continue challenging this law, which is only one expression of Monterey's war against people without homes!

If you don't want to risk a warning/citation you can still stand near us and display signs.

Meet in front of Walgreens on Alvarado Street in downtown Monterey. Bring signs and lawn chairs if you would like. We will continue this action on the first Friday of every month from 4pm-6pm.
