Thoughts for an Agenda Prospects
  for Thursday’s (9-23) Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom Meeting
 ​Diminishing numbers of participants and a lack of interest among San Lorenzo residents will most likely prompt a return to HUFF’s old meeting ground—the Sub Rosa–at its next get together on 9-23.  There’s also talk of reducing meeting frequency to twice a month rather than weekly.   Finally there is some interested in moving the day and perhaps the time of the HUFFmeet.   Come and weigh in if you’re interested.


  Latest Broodworthy Topics-      

+++ October Benchlands and River Eviction Notice


+++Excretia of the Special Shitty Council Meeting: A Positive HUFF Response


+++ Reports of regular police harassment in the Benchlands by top police officials (Mills & Butler)      

+++ Coalition and coordination prospects for West Side Cares, Sanitation for the People, SC Homeless Union      

+++ Homestead Rights for Vehicular Dwellers in Washington State

Meanwhile ongoing concerns include:
+++ Charting the Lack of “progress” on City shelter/storage alternatives
+++ Failure of legal support to solidify and localize Martin v. Boise protections for unhoused folks–as has been done in Novato and Chico.       +++ Lack of grass-roots S.C. Union and HUFF organizing utilizing many declarations already made by many unhoused victims      

+++ Hot weather conditions and lack of shade in the Benchlands      

+++ Fall off in on-site organization for emergency response to likely move on the Benchlands in the coming weeks (say an immediate campground established by housed volunteers): Coalition Co-ordination
+++ Vaccination discrimination & Antibody testing; SB 742

Research is needed into:
      +++ Vehicle Code Vivisection: Defanging Hobohammer SCPD’s Haebe and Dustheart Deborah Elston’s favorite tools for stealing homeless homes–the so-called 72-hour “abandoned vehicle” fraud.
      +++ Record of Failed protections against Psychiatric Deportations, the record of Reiss hearing failures, dumping and forced drugging of the  “mentally ill”.  (Free Radio show coming up on fighting forced drugging with attorney  Jim Gottstein & psych-survivor Roxanne Stewart-Johnson)

Still Awaiting Action:
