Community Members Decorate Anti-Homeless Fence at Santa Cruz Post Office
Tue Mar 14 2017
Anti-Homeless Architecture is Widespread in Downtown Santa Cruz
Anti-homeless architecture is common in Santa Cruz, including hi-frequency Mosquito Boxes in parks, removing planter boxes and free speech zones on Pacific, replacing the City Hall lawn with gravel and rocks, and now the ugly chain link fencing at the historic downtown post office. On March 11 and 12, Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs decorated the anti-homeless fence at the post office to make it more attractive. Signs, toys, toothpaste and toothbrushes, socks, soap, clothes, shoes, flowers, and strips of fabric were weaved through the links of the fence.

Keith McHenry writes: A safe dry shelter for over a dozen of our homeless friends is now being fenced off and one of our city's most historic and beautiful buildings is being defaced. Bathrooms, housing and services could have been provided but officials find spending tax dollars on anti-homeless redevelopment is a better use of money.

They will never be able to drive poverty out of sight unless they make housing affordable. Instead it looks like the liberals are making their move using the chaos of Trump to camouflage their anti-homeless cruelty. The community is so anti-homeless it is even willing to deface its own beautiful historic post office with an ugly chain link fence.
