HUFF meets early: 10:30 AM 3-7-18 Wednesday at the Sub Rosa Cafe (next to the Bike Church on Pacific Ave.)

HUFF [Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom] will begin its meeting half an hour early if necessary on the sidewalk outside the Sub Rosa (hopefully inside), but definitely moving indoors by 11 AM.

On the agenda:   Reviewing the phony PACT expenditures “cleaning up the downtown”, spotlighting Chief Mills’s busts of refugees from the San Lorenzo Campground after its closing last Wednesday, the psuedo-census of the SCPD grilling “homeless-looking” folks around the downtown in the days that followed, strategies for advising those outside to resist blueshirt and greenshirt bullying, a hard look at the new Boneyard barbedwire River St. campground, and more…all, with coffee.

  •   Support the Warming Center, Food Not Bombs,  HUFF and other activists in documenting, providing resources, & publicizing the situation.
  •   Back up homeless efforts to organize either as in protest or to demand adequate and accessible facilities.
  •   Exchange information with other supporters there to generate more communication and better solutions in the future.

This e-mail is the opinion of HUFF and does not necessarily represent the views of Food Not Bombs or the Warming Center.
