SLEEPS (Safe Legally Entitled Emergency Places to Sleep) – SNOW AT THE OLD FEDERAL BUILDING PROTEST CAMP – December 6, 2013

The weather during the winters of 2013 and 2014 was very cold, with a lot of snow and the SLEEPS camps stayed at the Federal Building protesting for the right to shelter themselves from the harsh conditions.  The Eugene public could meet people like Deann, who was a blind woman who lived there.  It was hard to see people living in such conditions and even harder to imagine anyone trying to live without shelter at all–or being ticketed and harassed simply for trying to shelter themselves.  All these things seem deeply wrong and the efforts of activists were to do something about it once and for all–Ban The Camping Ban.
