Location Details

Berkeley
Berkeley residents will be marching to Berkeley City Hall, opposing the Berkeley RV ban and holding a vigil for all the poor and unhoused Bay Area residents being told to leave town.

On Feb. 28, Berkeley City Council voted for a proposal that bans vehicle dwellers from the streets. 78 speakers spoke for two hours calling for action to clean Berkeley's streets and give vehicular residents a place to go. Despite all the calls for humane treatment, Council voted poor people out of the city. "No house car or camper for human habitation will be allowed within the City limits."

The proposal also changes city code to make it illegal to park any RV, motor home or "house car" on the street between the hours of 2:00 AM and 5:00 AM. "House cars" "do not need to contain any plumbing or cooking facilities."

We invite you to march for humane treatment of the poor and unhoused, for alternative housing and self-determination.
