Novato Victory: Kudos to the California Homeless Union and Attorney Anthony Prince

In mid-July Attorney Anthony Prince of the California Homeless Union successfully applied for a restraining order to stop enforcement of a thinly-disguised anti-homeless Novato city Camping ban designed to work around the Martin v. Boise decision. Perhaps activists in Santa Cruz can take similar action, long promised by the Santa Cruz Homeless Union, either with or without an attorney.
WHY AND HOW
To assist and inspire any would-be legal eagles and/or simply lay activists interested in following in successful footsteps, here’s both Prince’s application for the court Injunction as well as the Court’s positive response in Novato. Hard work by S.C. Homeless Union president and workers in large part compiled the evidence. Long-time Court survivor Keith McHenry of the allied Food Not Bombs organization has repeatedly suggested that the legal arguments, gleaned from prior applications could be mustered fairly quickly. This is something ordinary mortals could do without relying on cowed or overworked attorneys.

The Court order: https://www.scribd.com/document/516120708/Novato-camping-restrictions-temporary-restraining-order

BACKGROUND STORIES
Attached are several stories giving background (from an establishment perspective of the Novato City Council’s conniving against Camp Compassion and the unhoused folks in that town: from the Marin Independent Journal and the San Francisco Chronicle. For completeness and amusement, I add the Novato and Police Chief’s statements as well.

“Free Commander X”   Protest Rally at San Jose Courthouse 280 S. 1st Street, San Jose, California Tuesday Noon 7-20 Keith McHenry of Food Not Bombs writes:  “Doyon was homeless in Santa Cruz and was participating in a protest against the city’s policy of dehumanizing those who live outside. According to the 2011 Federal indictment, a December 16, 2010, DDoS attack was orchestrated as part of “Operation Peace Camp 2010” in retaliation for the enforcement of the camping ban. The City of Santa Cruz enacted Section 6.36.010 of its Municipal Code, entitled “Camping Prohibited,” which contained restrictions and definitions on camping within Santa Cruz City. This sleeping ban law was made even more repressive in early June changing its title to “Camping Services and Standards Ordinance.” The law officially took effect on July 9, 2021, and could be used to justify the relocation of all unhoused to some as not yet defined facilities that could include a dusk to dawn “safe sleeping site” in a parking lot.” Chris Doyon and Keith McHenry were broadcasting a weekly live podcast from Freedom Camp at San Lorenzo Park in Santa Cruz when Commander X was extradited to the United States. This is the last program Doyon did just days before he was captured.
