ON THE MENU
The 39th weekly sidewalk sleepout in front of City Hall also includes a cook-out. Food Not Bombs will be serving vegies and other vegan yumyum's from beneath its pavilion, waving to passing pedestrians, council members and staff during the late afternoon.

Troublemaker Toby Nixon, the "no leaders" leader of the Triple A Freedom Sleepers will likely have some carnivore-pleasing items to sizzle on his portable stove. Jumbogumbo Joe Schultz is rumored to be providing coffee and additional edibles.

MORE EXTENSIVE BENZORE MEMORIAL APRIL 12
No Council meeting this week, and the official memorial for Chris Bezore will be happening next Tuesday the 12th, but folks may be talking about him nonetheless. See http://www.facebook.com/events/803713033091146/ for more details.

WHY SHOW UP AT ALL?
The point is to maintain a human, conscience-provoking, and "illegal" presence at City Hall in violation of the Sleeping Ban and other abusive anti-homeless ordinances that City Council has laid on the backs of folks outside.

EARLIER REPORTS AND RELATED CAMPAIGNS
Those interested in trailing along after the City Council's proposed Homeless Task Force (reportedly coming up April 12) can chat with fellow starry-eyed hopefuls at Trinity Presbyterian Church 420 Melrose at 5 PM on Tuesday April 5th.
