Homeless camp being shut down and park exclusions skyrocket
The City of Portland and local businesses team up to shut down one of Portland's oldest homeless camps, and park exclusions given out by a private security group hired by the Portland Business Alliance continue to skyrocket. The latest figure Street Roots uncovered is 1,444 since November of 2006. Local attorney Adam Arms breaks his silence and gives his real opinion on the SAFE process and on the ordinance itself. An update from a Mercy Corps from the frontlines of Katrina, and so much more - all in tomorrow's issue of Street Roots.
