Homes not Jails
Sunday, 07 March 2004
05:00 PM - 06:30 PM
Our monthly meeting.

> Homes not Jails was first formed in 1992 as a homeless
> advocacy / squatting organization.  Homes not Jails does both "publicity" squatting (an open call to occupy a building, to call media and public attention
> tohousing concerns, which are evicted quickly) and permanent, sustainable squatting (creating a secure, long term living space with as little public attention as possible).  
> There are an increasing number of homeless people on the streets, proposed cuts in section 8 funding, fewer jobs, higher rents, and cuts in government spending on shelters and healthcare, something needs to be done.  Hundreds out of the 6000+ homeless people in Boston sleep on the street during the winter, and every year there
> are reports of people freezing to death outside.  At the same time, there are hundreds of privately owned abandoned properties in Boston alone, many of them
> habitable.  This is a call for anyone interested in finding a home, helping out, or just getting informed about homeless advocacy and squatting: come on down!
