What to Do Next Time the River Floods?
Rains are on the Horizon
The Nearest, Most Obvious, & Most Immediate Sheltering Area is the Upper Park
Yet Police Have Ticketed Those Who Went There To Escape the Flood
Where Can Those Outside Take Their Property and Persons Safely ?

Food Not Bombs, the Santa Cruz Homeless Union, and HUFF (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom) will be holding its own remembrance ceremony for those who’ve died this year on Tuesday December 21st 3 PM at the encampment and meal area. We’ll also discuss possible responses to the next flood.
In December 2020, housed & unhoused peacefully refused to leave the park. How many would be willing to repeat this resistance while filing for a life-saving Injunction as happened a year ago ?
Can the broader community repeat the successful resistance & Injunction of 12-28 & 12-29? Do Benchlands residents and Community members support this strategy understanding the risk of arrest?
