THIS WEDNESDAY: ALL OUT AT CITY HALL AGAINST LAMC 41.18
LA City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell is working with City Attorney and Mayoral aspirant Mike Feuer to jam a terrifyingly revised law through City Council called LAMC 41.18. The law would make it illegal to sit, lay, or sleep inside or within 500 feet of a park, school, homeless shelter, and on. There are even provisions in the law that make it illegal to speak to some people. The point of the law is to criminalize the unhoused, and to ferry them out of site for the well off in LA. The original version of the law was found to be unconstitutional, and this appears to be a workaround that ruling.
As rents expand ever higher in LA, and the poor and unhoused are increasingly criminalized, is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
Join our Housing & Homelessness Committee in showing up this Wednesday, 2:00 p.m. at City Hall to speak out against this law, which amounts to L.A. apartheid.
