Join us at noon on Pacific to TAKE BACK THE PUBLIC SPACE ! We'll share coffee, brownies, strong opinions, and heart space with all comers.

HUFF [Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom] is tabling to raise public awareness about and action around...

+++ The upcoming attack on vendors and other non-commercial folks on the street by the City Council with its new "Vanish the Vendors" ordinance. The law reportedly returns to City Council on May 10th. See [item #22]. My summary is at .

+++ Support for and solidarity with artists on Pacific Avenue, notably two arrested on Saturday April 16 for "displaying artwork outside the blue dotted area'. See “Pacific Avenue Santa Cruz: The Joff Jones and Alex Skelton Report on Freedom in the USA” at .

+++ Join the HUFF campaign to open the City Hall bathrooms 24-hours a day, reopen the closed Soquel Ave. garage bathroom, and bring Santa Cruz into the 21st Century on elementary health and sanitation matters.

+++ Support the HUFF campaign to replace "forbidden zones" blue "performance pens", and "move along" laws with the successful Voluntary Street Performers Guidelines--which worked well from 1980 to 2002, until torpedoed by a merchant-hamstrung City Council. See .

Bring video and audio devices if you've got 'em (phones will do)!
