The Occupy-Madison homeless encampment located at 800 East Washington Ave. is going to end April 30th at 12 noon. The 70-80 people living there will be forced to return to the streets, parks, or underpasses UNLESS WE STAND UP. This community which has formed over the past 7 months has provided mutual support for the people living there with minimal City services over the past 7 months in a way that the City’s social services programs have not been able to do. The City administration(Mayor Soglin) has refused to allow this community to reside on any City owned property.
Please come to a march beginning at Occupy Madison at 12:00 noon on Monday April 30th and ending with a rally at the City-County Building on Martin Luther King Blvd. beginning at 1:00. We need to send the message that Occupy Madison needs to continue as a home for many homeless people. We won’t go away!
