Act Locally or Regret Repeatedly: 

Join Early Rising Outdoor Survivors at City Hall 7:30 AM Wednesday to Educate Councilmembers and Staff on Homeless Survival Needs, Resist the Recall, and Quaff Coffee at the Bernard Klitzner Memorial Koffee Klatch.
Plan for the next Community-Backed Homeless Encampment at the Wednesday 2-12 HUFF (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom) meeting noon at the Sub Rose Cafe next to the Bike Church.
Train to Resist Police Intimidation of Survival Campers at the weekly Union’s Resistance Forum Wednesday 3-4:45 PM at the Sub Rosa Cafe.  Meal (of sorts) provided.
Demand “Bad News” Bernal Order His Cops to Stand off and Allow Homeless Activists to Reopen Camp Phoenix now that Governor Newsom has declared that area surplus space to be designated for homeless use. Denounce the latest cosmetic “Winter Shelter” lie with the opening of the Armory–which only serves 20 more people and ignores the 1000-2000 outside, spending ridiculous sums of money to shelter a few, while really providing protective cover to the City Council and Board of Supervisors for essentially doing nothing for the great majority.
Contact Chief Mills at amills@cityofsantacruz.com  to demand fundamental changes such as that seized survival gear be available for reclaiming during regular business hours, not just 6 hours as week.  See https://www.indybay.org/uploads/2019/12/18/police_protest_flyer_12-18-19.pdf Hold accountable City Hall NIMBY enablers at all public meetings:  Former Mayor Martine Watkins, New Mayor Justin Cummings, City Manager-for-Life Martin Bernal, His Wrecking Crew of Abuse Enablers Susie O’Hara and Megan Bunch, Police Chief Andy Mills, & City Attorney Tony Condotti  for Inciting the Ross Camp Destruction,  Subsequent Deaths, & the Friday Nov 15th Demolition of Camp Phoenix (the renewed Deseire Memorial Survival Encampment in back of Ross) with a campaign of lies to the community regarding “adequate shelter options”. Remember Deseire Quintero–Killed by City Indifference, Negligence, and Malice in Closing the First Ross Camp Without Any Adequate Shelter!  Support Survival Campgrounds, Empty Building Takeovers This Winter Wherever They Happen. Take peaceful action to open up buildings for Winter Shelter as well as an end to harassment citation of folks surviving outside under “trespass on public property”, “closed area”, “public nuisance” and “blocking the sidewalk” pretexts;
Witness, oppose, and document police and ranger harassment using “closed areas”, “blocking the sidewalk”, “public nuisance”, “public trespass”, and “illegal lodging” to get around the Boise v. Martin “No shelter? No tickets!” decision.
Demand City Manager “Mangler” Martin Bernal and SCPD Police Chief  “Ambushmaster” Andy Mills account for their destruction of Camp Phoenix ignoring City Council’s required Standard Operating Procedures for closing encampments and violating their own admission that “trespass” could not be properly applied to the survival sleepers
Sign up at the SCHU Table at the Food Not Bombs meals to find more direct and effective ways to support the next homeless-run encampment.  Contact the Union at 831-431-7766.  Union meets 5 PM Sundays at Front & Water St.  Phone: 431-7766  DONATE SURVIVAL GEAR SATURDAYS & SUNDAYS AT FOOD NOT BOMBS
