Peace be with you
This from Verbena about recent sweeps in Southern Humboldt. Activists for the houseless from So Hum spoke to the Human Rights Committee Saturday. We learned, a vigilante was working with the So Hum sheriffs to destroy property and threaten houseless persons. I have video from the human rights committee meeting and as soon as I can figure how to get it off the camera I will give it to you.
Beginning about 7am this morning (Friday, October 10th), Sheriff’s Deputies began a multiple officer raid on people sleeping in various rural area of Southern Humboldt, Redway/Garberville area. By 10am, three people had been arrested!!
Sheriff’s are videotaping and photographing people. “Criminals” for sleeping.
Please call the County, call the radio stations, etc. Express your outrage.
I have seen these SoHum “sweeps”, and you would think, the way the cops caravan with multiple vehicles and officers that they are looking for a lost child or a killer hiding in the woods. But, NO- the cops are hunting people for the crime of SLEEPING. “Wake them up so that ‘we’ are protected…” Paleeeeeese!
Please call KMUD: (707) 923-3911
