Legalize Survival: Demonstration at Olympia City Hall!
July 21, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In Olympia, we have an inadequate amount of shelter and housing and NO legal place for people to sleep outside. Various city ordinances criminalize and discriminate against houseless people who have nowehere to go. These ordinances, which restrict camping, sitting and lying on public sidewalks and the ability of people to live in their cars, force people into conditions that are unsafe, unhealthy and unstable.
This action will protest the adminstrative functions of Olympia City Hall’s second floor, many of which are complicit in the criminalization of houseless people. Please birng noise-makers of various sort for a noise demo.
This direct action is part of Just Housing’s Legalize Survival campaign, which has used a range of tactics, from “camp-ins” and public bathroom occupations to city council speak-outs, to force the city government to end its discriminatory practices against houseless people.
