SLEEPS REPRIEVE

 

SLEEPS was notified at 5:30 tonight [Dec. 28] that the Government Services Agency (GSA) has determined that instead of blocking SLEEPS First Amendment rights tonight at 11 as previously planned, they are giving twenty four hours notice and will not evict until  11 pm Saturday December 29.

SLEEPS is planning a Saturday night 10:30 pm  candlelight vigil for all those who are unhoused and unable to sleep safely in Eugene in Lane County due to the "anti-camping" regulations which are really "anti-sleeping" regulatioins and in violation of the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution.

Stay tuned for more complete information regarding legal basis, flip-flop of government on what constitutes the "interest of justice" as well as more information on Saturday's vigil and the probable arrest of Emily Semple.
