Un-Eviction Action: Defend John and Allen’s Home! [Olympia]
August 18, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 8:00 pm
EVICTION DEFENSE ACTION
CARPOOLS LEAVE BURIAL GROUNDS (215 5th SE, Oly) AT 8AM
Olympia Police have issued an eviction notice to houseless campers John and Allen, ordering them to leave by 9AM, Friday (8/18). With Olympia’s anti-houseless ordinances, John and Allen have no legal place to go. Please attend this action to prevent the OPD eviction; Strength in numbers is crucial to an eviction defense.
NOTE: OPD can only legally act on the eviction notice BEGINNING at 9AM; there is no guarantee this eviction will happen exactly at 9AM – it could happen anytime afterwards. So please come prepared for a potentially long action and bring lots of snacks and water!
Just Housing is an Olympia-based houseless solidarity organization that organizes advocacy campaigns and direct actions to protest discriminatoty practices against houseless people, from camping bans, to No Sit/No Lie ordinances and inadequate public bathroom access.
