HUFF calls for food prep/server volunteers for joint activist effort spreadheaded by Food Not Bombs as City “leaders” promise in-place shelter but provide none. NO Noon Meeting Today at the Sub Rosa

Food Not Bombs [FNB] field worker Keith McHenry reported this morning (April 1st) that the City/County under the misleadership of City Manager Martin Bernal’s PR fluffer Susie O’Hara has still not forwarded the Permit that SCPD Chief Mills is repeatedly threatening closure of FNB over.  McHenry predicts the meal will move from its current swampy isolated spot in back of the Court building at 701 Ocean St. and/or in San Lorenzo Benchlands to a more centrally located accessible area downtown by noon today.
McHenry calls for food preppers and servers to help at the Vet’s Hall at noon today and in the days to come. 

No Motel vouchers have reportedly been given out by the City and County which, according to CACH activist Rafa Sonnenfeld are pondering, postulating, and preparing a Thursday response, which Sonnenfeld speculates is tied up in “financial considerations” of cost.  As the virus spreads. 

Meanwhile fenced off psuedo-triage centers around town (such as Lot 17 near the sports stadium), the parking lot next to the Calvary Episcopal (Red) Church, the area adjacent to Depot Park, the parking lot next to University Copy on Front St., and other such “holding pen” areas remain closed. 

Portapotties and washing stations are reportedly insufficiently cleaned and often lacking soap, toilet paper, and paper towels.   The only disability portapotty in the City is behind a locked fence at 1220 River St. next to a line of unused and inaccessible portapotties there.  The last time a disabled portapotty was publicly available was at Camp Phoenix last November, when it was paid for by FNB and the Santa Cruz Homeless Union before being hauled away by the police under a hastily fabricated “trespass” complaint.  HUFF IS SEEKING VOLUNTEERS TO DO A DAILY CHECK AND REPORT IN ON THE VARIOUS PORTAPOTTIES AND PRIMITIVE GARAGE BATHROOMS (often lacking privacy) throughout the City.

Organizations across the country are calling for a Rent Strike to begin today.  McHenry reports folks are reporting illegal evictions are already occurring locally. 
HUFF WILL BE ORGANIZING BY PHONE TO PREPARE POSSIBLE PROTESTS DEMANDING IMMEDIATE FACILITY ACCESS (i.e. Motel rooms) before the only option  is quarantine areas.  CONTACT US AT 831-423-4833 IF YOU’D LIKE TO HELP OR WANT TO PROVIDE REPORTS.
WE ARE ALSO CONSIDERING WAYS TO DIRECTLY SUPPORT SAFE PROTESTS BY RENTERS, EMERGENCY WORKERS DEMANDING DECENT WORKING CONDITIONS, &, OF COURSE, FOLKS OUTSIDE DEMANDING BASIC HEALTH/HOUSING OPTIONS.  SUCH AS BY CAR PROTESTS AS IS BEING DONE IN OTHER CITIES. 

Street Spirit newspaper distribution operations are currently suspended, but the Berkeley vendor center is still reportedly  looking for ways to provide some interim support for vendors whose sales lifeline has been cut off.  When HUFF hears, we’ll let the few vendors we have down here know.

The Union of the Homeless is slating a National Conference Call for tomorrow if anyone has issues they want me to bring up. 

The wandering HUFF coffee canister used to supply morning coffee to those outside which “walked away” last week has been recovered cowering in the Vet’s Building.

HUFF shifting to in-the-field support and reporting: HUFF members aiding Food Servers & Hotel Shelter Providers as City “leaders” lie and stall. NO Noon Meeting Today at the Sub Rosa

As of mid-day March 24th, police chief Andy Mills posted “Vacate by 9 AM March 25” Notices around the Town Clock’s COVID-19 Relief Center, jointly staffed by Food Not Bombs, SC Homeless Union, HUFF, and other community volunteers. 

The Center has been operating 24 hours a day, serving food and supplies to those outside as City Manager Bernal, Mayor Cummings, City PR Megaphonestress Susie O’Hara, and Police Chief Mills have continued to ignore, harass, and/or misinform the community.  

Yesterday’s “no public allowed” City Council meeting defeated two attempts by the dying Progressive majority to (1) call an emergency meeting within 48 hours to address homeless shelter and health issues being ignored at the Tuesday Council meeting; and (2) strengthen and lengthen the fluffy light and unenforceable eviction moratorium proposed by Mayor “Can’t Help” Cummings and Vice-Mayor “Merry Malice” Myers.

For the last two nights, SC Homeless Union has taken the lead in distributing overnight motel vouchers paid for privately at that location (and last night from a parking garage).  See https://www.santacruzsentinel.com/2020/03/24/santa-cruz-homeless-activists-draw-coronavirus-shelter-battle-lines/ for a slanted Sentinel take on the distribution.
While denouncing a “lack of the 6′ safe distance” at the voucher distribution on 3-23 and using that as the pretext to “cease and desist” order the vital Town Clock support center, Mills’s police cited an activist for marking out 6′ intervals on 3-24 in the parking garage for the 2nd voucher distribution. One hypocritical hand washes the other.
Street Spirit newspaper distribution operations are currently suspended, but the Berkeley vendor center is looking for ways to provide some interim support for vendors whose sales lifeline has been cut off.  When HUFF hears, we’ll let the few vendors we have down here know.
Frequent local updates can be found on Facebook under Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs, Santa Cruz County Homeless Advocates, Homeless Outside in Santa Cruz, and HUFF.  As well as occasionally at indybay.org/santacruz.
If anyone has seen the wandering coffee canister used to supply morning coffee to those outside which “walked away” yesterday, please ask it to come home!  



ACTIONS, RESOURCES, & CONSIDERATIONS from a HUFFster’s perspective

  • Check at http://www.huffsantacruz.org/Lostshows.html to hear a series of phoned-in reports from different activists and workers–which should be posted shortly and will be updated daily if possible.
  •  City Manager Martin Bernal provided a handful of portapotties  City-wide and cold water washstands after refusing to do so for months, but maintained nighttime closure of bathrooms in parks in spite of the emergency situation and repeated calls and e-mails.   Nor has the County acted to provide basic sanitary facilities for the poorest outside, though it has financial and organization resources to do so.
  • City agencies have thwarted or denied Food Not Bombs, the Depot Project, Bagels on Bikes, HUFF, and other organizations their attempts to establish such vital resources.
  • Recent shutdowns at the Library, Louden Nelson, the Metro, the publicly sponsored Bookshop Santa Cruz, closed restaurants and businesses make this situation ever more dangerous both for folks outside and the broader community.
  • No motel or hotel rooms are yet available for the 1000-2000 homeless outside who want and may need them to shelter more safely and securely in spite of government directives and financial grants.
  • The inadequate “normal” charitable activities of those working with churches, social services, etc. have been cut back or closed–many of the staff of these organizations are over 60 and particularly vulnerable to the corona virus.
  • Normal donations to those directly seeking survival money through “panhandling” have been discouraged or criminalized under the new emergency regs, enacted without public discussion or vote.
  • Public transportation options have been restricted or shut down, making access to what limited resources there are even more problematic.
  • Mayor Cummings has issued no calls for an emergency Council meeting to pass elementary measures already done in other cities like a moratorium on evictions and rents.
  • City Manager Martin Bernal & the City Council majority have a long history of resisting the expansion of basic services for the less privileged in town.
  • Supervisor Coonerty and the Board of Supervisors have declined to provide county-wide resources in an equitable and sensible fashion.
  • The health of the community depends on our community action through a direct and united response.
  • Up to now we have seen how “concerned” and “effective” local authorities have been in meeting the needs of renters and those outside.
  • Meekly following the dictates of authority in this crisis has not in the past, nor likely in the future, to be a wise, health-providing, and productive course.
  • We must confront directly, clearly, persistently, loudly and immediately to secure the basic survival needs of the community in the current crisis.
  • With washed hands and care to keep physical distance, bring food and yourselves to the noon food serving to sustain the survival effort and take the necessary future steps.
  • Contact Food Not Bombs (575-770-3377), HUFF (831-423-4833), or the Santa Cruz Homeless Union (831-431-7766) if unable to come for health or other reasons. (454-2200) and you wish to help.

HUFF Meeting for Wednesday 3-18 Cancelled: HUFF members to aid Food Servers at Town Clock’s Santa Cruz Homeless Union COVID-19 Relief Center at NOON today

Since Sunday evening March 15th , Food Not Bombs, HUFF, the Santa Cruz Homeless Union and others have supplied volunteers, food, and supplies for distribution to the community–particularly folks outside without safe reliable shelter.  Hats off to Lucero Luna, Keith, Kevin, Elise, Fish, and many others who have sustained this effort.
We’ll be gathering, some of us by phone, at the Town Clock at noon today to assist the on-going survival supplies center.
Please observe 6′ separation.  Gloves and masks will be available for food distribution workers.

HUFF Meeting for Wednesday 3-11 Cancelled; Activists are Invited to the Coastal Commission Hearing on the Main Beach/Cowell Beach Ban Instead

A number of concerns has prompted me to cancel tomorrow’s HUFF meeting at the Sub Rosa Cafe.  These include: 
        (1)  a conflict with the Coastal Commission hearing where I’m presenting an argument against the City Council’s five-year ban on the Main and Cowell Beaches;   
        (2) the Sub Rosa impressario Jacine advising me he’s sick and likely won’t be able to open the area tomorrow; 
        (3) the cancellation of all of Chief Andy Mills anti-homeless 7-Point plan meetings this week;
        (4) the Corona virus scare making public meetings a tad less desirable than usual has prompted         (5) low attendance at the last few meetings which prompted a suggestion we meet every other week–as HUFF was doing before we coalesced with the now moribund Conscience and Action group, and         (6) the fact that the Coastal Commission agenda item is at an uncertain time–anytime between 9 AM and late afternoon, requiring continued presence there though I’m not too clear I’ll have the stamina.

The Coastal Commission begins its hearings in Scotts Valley at the Hilton Hotel at  9 AM at 6001 La Madrona Drive.   Wed Afternoon Coastal Commission— Defeat the 5-Year Beach Curfew 6001 La Madrona Dr. Hilton Hotel .
The item of interest to me and perhaps other HUFFsters is w22c at https://www.coastal.ca.gov/meetings/agenda/#/2020/3 .  It comes up at an uncertain time–though likely after lunch sometime.  I and a number of others are claiming the 5-year ban on being present on the beach at night is another anti-homeless move, unjustified by “crime”, “nuisance”, or “littering” claims.

My latest flyer recently distributed at City Council is at  https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2020/03/10/18831434.php (“A Double-Sided Flyer to City Council on the Homeless Health Crisis“),
–Robert Norse

Speak Out Against Chief Mills Latest Anti-Homeless Plan

SCPD Chief Andy Mills and reactionaries on the City Council want to “work around” the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Martin v. Boise decision.

Since they refuse to open up survival encampments or vacant public buildings, police need “tools” to drive unhoused people out of public spaces. Hence the Mills 7-Point Plan…

(1) Banning Tents During the Day,
(2) Making Possession of Syringes a Crime in Public Places,
(3) Declaring Pacific Avenue a “Park” to Allow Police-Initiated Stay-Away Orders,
(4) Criminalizing Bike Repair in Public Places,
(5) Driving Away Vehicular Homes from West Cliff,
(6) Increasing Legal Pressure on Homeless “Crime”,
(7) Shopping Cart Criminalization.
