FOOD NOT BOMBS still meets at the Town Clock for its daily noon-3PM meal. Ask how you can help.
STILL NO SANTA CRUZ HOMELESS UNION FRIDAY MEETINGS…unless they get new leadership volunteers. Call 575-770-3377 or 431-7766 to learn the latest. Volunteer–they desperately need new blood with the passion to organize! And new leadership with the time and resources to lead. Especially with the City Manager’s avowed threat to disperse the Benchlands camp this summer and City Council’s failure to use the $14.5 million to set up survival campgrounds and support those that exist!
HUFF STILL MEETS EVERY THURSDAY (NEXT MEETING 6-30) TO SCHEME & STARGAZE. COFFEE & CONTROVERSY AT THE SUB ROSA COURTYARD 11 AM-1 PM THURSDAYS NEXT TO THE BIKE CHURCH AT 703 PACIFIC AVE.

OTHER OPTIONS: FACEBOOK, CALL HUFF FOR FRSC INTERVIEW, WRITE ESTABLISHMENT OR ALTERNATE MEDIA.
KEEP YOUR PHONE CHARGED AND HANDY TO RECORD UNEXPECTED ENCOUNTERS OR INCIDENTS YOU WITNESS ON YOUR PHONE PARTICULARLY IF AND WHEN POLICE WARN YOU YOU’LL BE SWEPT.
TELL THE WORLD! CALL HUFF TO BE INTERVIEWED AND “IMMORTALIZED” IN THE HUFF AUDIO ARCHIVES: Contact Bathrobespierre Robert at the HUFF line or firstname.lastname@example.org.
DON’T WAIT FOR THE ACLU TO TURTLEWALK INTO ACTION. LEARN YOUR RIGHTS, USE THEM, TALK WITH OTHERS, & PUBLICIZE.
