image Santa Cruz City Council to Vote on Divesting from Trump’s Wall, DAPL Banks Resolutions 480_santa_cruz_city_council_dapl_resolution_1.jpg by via Santa Cruz Defunds Injustice
Santa Cruz, California - Two highly anticipated divestment resolutions will come before the Santa Cruz City Council for a vote during its April 25 meeting. One resolution aims to divest the city from companies involved in the construction of President Donald Trump’s controversial US-Mexico border wall, while the other targets banks financing the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). If both pass, the city will divest funds from companies like Granite Construction who seek to construct the proposed b...

document "Progressives" Defeat Trump Wall Investment, but Local Anti-Homeless Fencing Still On survivor_sleepers_sign-up_list.pdf_140_.jpg by Robert Norse
Looks like the threat of disinvestment from Granite Construction may have discouraged them from bidding for the anti-immigrant Trump wall on the border. However the Councilmember Terrazas's :"Public Safety" Committee will still be considering a "cost-effective" fence along the levee along with increased cops, surveillance cameras, and lighting to add to the "no loitering", forbidden to sit, and high-pitched anti-homeless "Mosquito" boxes along the levee at Tuesday night's 4-25 Council meetin...

document Struggle Against Sleeping Ban Becomes a Matter of Survival at City Hall suggestions_for_survival_sleepers.pdf_140_.jpg by Robert Norse
For the last 10 nights since the Winter Shelter program ended (a month earlier than Berkeley's or Salinas's), some of its refugees have been camped at City Hall, spending their nights and some of their days there as well. Some are arrayed just outside the offices of Mayor Cynthia Chase and the same Council majority that kept sleeping a crime in a Council vote last spring. I've written a flyer or two about the issue & distributed it at "liberal" activist gatherings like the Indivisible rally...

The City of Santa Cruz is proposing to build a new five-level parking garage above a new relocated city library on the parking lot bordered by Lincoln, Cedar and Cathcart Streets, where the Farmer's Market currently meets. We strongly believe that the City should implement a Commuter Benefits Program first, before it considers the construction of a much more costly garage....

There have been nearly two years of weekly overnight protests on the sidewalks adjoining City Hall (the Freedom Sleepers) and a month of nightly protests (a group I call the Survival Sleepers) at the same spot. Now, the day after Fuhrer Trump has directly attacked Syria, escalating to the brink of nuclear war, SCPD attacked the poor sheltering themselves under the eaves of the City Hall and arrested Freedom Sleeper Abbi Samuels as she videoed the abuse. The Winter Shelter program (shelterin...
