Arcata Cracks Down on Poor
I hear this morning that the police may be getting ready to raid an encampment in the Community Forest. The encampment was apparently inspired by last year's People Project Encampment. People tell me that Kevin Hoover of the Arcata Eye was there taking pictures the other day. Also, in today's Eureka Reporter it was reported that the Endeavor is going to stop feeding meals to the needy unless they can show proof of residency and provide free labor for downtown businesses. The Endeavor keeps cutting services to appease right-wing fanatics that will never be appeased until all the poor and people that are different (Gypsies, gays, Jews) are put in concentration camps and killed. If the churches in Arcata are really Christian they will sever ties with Arcata Endeavor Inc. and develop an independent alternative to provide Christian charity for the poor like the scripture calls for.
