Santa Cruz California… How Can You Sleep At Night??
Tuesday August 07… Plan to stay overnight.
Tues 6:00 PM - Weds 6:00 AM
Location: Santa Cruz County Courthouse Steps, Water Street side of building
Ed Frey, a local lawyer, is due to be incarcerated by a Santa Cruz California “Superior Court” for violating California Code 647(e) which appears to inhibit a US citizen’s right to rest as they travel from state to state in violation of the US Constitution.
Please join homeless advocates and community members as we support the courage of Ed Frey and the activists of Peace Camp 2010 in their protest of unjust laws criminalizing sleep and the act of protest itself. Ed is scheduled to report to jail at 9AM, August 8
Bring signs or sign making materials, food or drink (COFFEE) to share, flashlights, games, books, music, creative displays, loud noisemakers, whatever you feel is necessary to pass the time and bring awareness to the issues Ed’s arrest exposed. Come and stay for as long as you like, or plan to stay up all night with us. And bring your friends!
