The Santa Rosa City Council signed off on a plan to clear out a longtime homeless encampment on city property.
Approximately 50 people have been targeted.
The City Council made the decision unanimously over the objections of several people who live on Homeless Hill and are resisting internment in the city’s soon-to-be-expanded homeless gulag.
“This is a huge experiment on the backs of the most vulnerable people in our community,” said Adrienee Lauby, of the advocacy group Homeless Action.
Lauby called the notion that the city would force people from their encampment, some of whom have lived there for 15 years, and then have police take action against those who refused to leave or returned, “very, very harsh.”
Enjoy your Police State.
