Flyers Passed Out Recently at the Saturday Food Not Bombs "Soupstock" Anniversary

by Robert Norse (rnorse3 [at] hotmail.com)
These self-explanatory flyers criticize the City's #1 shelter-and-service provider, the so called "Housing Matters" which is more aptly termed :"Funding Matters" urging greater unity between oppressed workers, students, tenants, and unhoused folks.
Download and distribute
These flyers were passed out, variously, at the 5-18 Housing Matters [HM] PR march "to end homelessness", at the 5-25 Soupstock annual commemoration of Food Not Bombs, and at the Coral St. survival encampments in front of HM

The idea was to encourage both input from folks to share their experiences with HM after the recent "clean-up" raids driving sidewalk residents away and trashing their property.

These "sweeps" violate current local law (MC 6.36) as well as state law requiring documentation and storage of confiscated property. They also violate the Constitution as interpreted by the courts in Martin v. Boise and Grants Pass v. Johnson and arguably various international human rights agreements.
§How Much Longer...?

Thanks for the timely posting, Robert. After decades of practice, the wealthy predators of California know how to whitewash a scam. Statewide, look at the money spent in the name of the Homeless and what percentage is actually used for the good of people in need.
It's been a downward slide since the "War On Poverty" became the War Against the Poor.

If the profiteers can be defeated in this microcosm and broadcast to the world, it will be a great victory for all, so the chance must not be missed.

Perhaps my words have no value except as a show of solidarity, but accept them for that.

In Solidarity,
- Dave
