Announcement from the Beach Flats Neighborhood:


It's official: Racism, Bigotry and Hate are alive and well in Santa Cruz.

In the early morning hours, the Guadalupe mural was vandalized and destroyed at Beach Flats Park. With this act of vandalism you have complete erasure of Latino culture in a public space.

Also, under the guise of "neighborhood improvement", the sign at Beach Flats Park was also damaged; the word "Flats" was painted over.

Beach Flats Park is not modern and some people thinks it sucks...that's because they do not see clearly, and they don't use it the way lots of kids in this neighborhood do.

You know who you are and we know why you did it. Don't hide behind diversity and neighborhood improvement.

City of Santa Cruz and parks and recreation with this act of vandalism of complete the breast leakage of Latin culture in public space in the city.
