CA: Campground crisis as winter approaches

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — The River Street campground in Santa Cruz is slated for dispersal at the end of November, breaking promises from city staff that it would last through the winter until April.

The only option the city is offering in its place is a small night-time only shelter.

In anticipation of the River Street campground closure, homeless activists are organizing to establish a community survival campground.
