Mood: on fire
Now Playing: Raining on the Homeless - Stop the F -ing Sweeps
FREEZING in PORTLAND
It will be raining for the next ten days, the temperatures will hover just over freezing but flooding may occur if you are on low ground. We need a plan that makes sure all are warm and safe. We estimate there are 2000-3000 people left on the streets after the shelters are full. Emergency actions do not get everyone off the streets and that is criminal.
We must come up with a plan that accounts for all people, react as if a major earthquake has hit and set up ten times the number of warming spaces as we do now.
Stop these fucking sweeps, what is the matter with you Reese, Hales, and the rest of our city’s noble shits who do photo ops and leave people to die. 2012- We had 56 who died in the cold, not sure about 2013 but must be around the same number. The papers who print just negative stuff about the houseless should be boycotted by all who call themselves activists. I stopped watching local news because I just can’t stand the BS.
Today is call in Monday to stop the fucking sweeps.
Just call and get an update on what the hell these asses are doing if anything and keep calling on Mondays and Tuesdays until they stop. Where the hell are our noble lawyers who can bring suits against these would be business alliance councilmembers, who love fluoride but will let humans freeze because they will not declare an emergency and do something real.
We must get up every day and work to get real people into office, we must keep their feet to the fire, a good activist is not popular but he/she is feared.
We must bring hundreds to the council meetings and tell them they are out of time and if they don’t start doing something real they will see outrage every week and the VIPs who come to the Council will see what jerks we have running things.
Time is now!
The Keaton Otis memorial gathering in coming up on the 12th of this month; please come we are losing people too fast.
There is more, but I am tired and need to rest.
PS Patty said I sound mad---I am!
