City Attorney Stonewalls Homeless Activists on Settlement Conference



After leveling the Ross Camp, sending its 200-300 residents fleeing into the parks, greenbelt, downtown, and neighborhoods, and fencing off the area, the City is now refusing to sit down and work out compromise settlement terms as suggested by Judge Edward Devila. It apparently prefers to incur more costs.at the expense of its homeless residents.

This flyer presents the proposals made and rejected by the City Attorney without any discussion publicly or in open City Council session. And without comment from any Councilmember, including the “Progressive” faction.    City Attorney: Dump, Disperse, and Disappear Those Outside

Location Details
1220 River St. in front of the Salvation Army’s 60 tent “no walking in or out” Campground
The press conference/protest follows up on last May’s appeal to the Salvation Army management.

That event urged the Army to allow greater freedom and privacy for camp residents and to provide important upgrades in the living conditions there such as showers and protection from the heat.

See https://www.santacruzsentinel.com/2019/05/13/activists-question-new-santa-cruz-homeless-camp-operations/

Today’s event is again sponsored by the Santa Cruz Homeless Union, Conscience and Action, Food Not Bombs, and HUFF (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom).

It will be followed by a supportive visit to Monterey Superior Court (1:30 PM, Department 13, 1200 Aguajito Road ) in support of the Salinas Homeless Union’s court suit seeking to stop the police harassment of folks outside at Sherwood Park in Salinas.

It follows a partially successful challenge to the City’s discriminatory closing of bathrooms prompting City Council last Tueday night to act. An unusually cohesive Progressive majority voted 4-3
(1) to reopen the City Hall bathrooms (closed since the Freedom Sleeper protests of 2015-2017);
(2) to refer the Louden Nelson bathrooms issue to the homeless-focused CACH group, and
(3) to require the Parks and Recreation manager Tony Elliot get approval from City Council for any future closings of City facilities.

Activists have also scheduled a Direct Action ‘Open the Damn Bathrooms” event for Tuesday September 3rd at 1:30 PM at Louden Nelson Center. Concerned community members are invited to attend, witness, and/or participate.

Bathrooms Open Now! Petition

HUFFsters:

             For nearly a year and a half, the City’s Parks and Recreation Department has refused to restore bathroom use at Louden (London) Nelson Center to the General Public.  On Tuesday night, the matter will be on City Council perhaps for a vote with discussion starting at 7:30 PM.   E-Mail City Council at citycouncil@cityofsantacruz.com to demand return of these bathrooms as well as others to full use.    The swing vote here is like to be Vice-Mayor Justin Cummings.  E-mail him at  jcummings@cityofsantacruz.com .
              On September 3 at 1:30 PM at Louden Nelson there will be a direct action to require city bureaucrats to reopen the bathrooms there.  Join us there if City Council continues to support the foolish and bigoted policy there, which is a thinly disguised anti-homeless policy in no way justified by real stats about bathroom problems.
             Unless you let me know (at rnorse3@hotmail.com) by Sunday morning, I shall assume you have no opposition to HUFF’s adding it’s name to the petition below being circulated by Rabbi Phil Posner of Conscience and Action.

Thanks,
Robert Norse

I have a prostate problem,” he said, “and sometimes I pee in my pants.”


Petition SC City Council regarding Insufficient Public Bathrooms


HUFF (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom) along with other interested individuals, congregations and organizations is concerned with the lack of bathroom facilities available for the public and the homeless in Santa Cruz.  We hereby petition our Santa Cruz City Council to direct the Parks and Recreation Dept. and other relevant city departments to:

Open more bathrooms, or 24 hour Porta Pottys in Santa Cruz; and, or allow concerned individuals or organizations to receive permits to place Porta Pottys where needed, as for example at Louden Center where the public bathroom is currently closed after 1:30 pm, and City Hall which is always closed to the public except during Council meetings.

In making this appeal to our City Council, Conscience and Action, HUFF, and Food not Bombs, as they have previously indicated stand ready to meet with City Officials to help facilitate the above action/petition.


As of 8/22/19 the following organizations have agreed to sign this petition:
