City-Wide Solidarity Action to Support the Repeal of No-Camping Ordinance

The eve of the Summer Solstice, hundreds of Portlanders throughout the City of Roses will hold block parties and camp out on their front yards or sidewalks to visibly demonstrate their solidarity with the un-housed people of Portland!
Saturday night, June 21, 2008

This is a decentralized campaign of solidarity actions. Get your tents, sleeping bags, etc. and celebrate the shortest night of the year and start of the summer (and the eve of Portland's first "Sunday Parkways" event --  http://www.portlandonline.com/transportation/index.cfm?c=46103 ) and show solidarity with those who must camp and sleep outside year-round.
