Day of the campout for the Homeless on LeBreton Flats. August 25/97

At 2:00 the camp began with 2 tents in the illegal camp ground at LeBreton Flats and 2 tents on the legal side. By night fall their was 5 tents on the illegal side and still two on the legal side.

So far lots of media but no police. The NCC came by once about 6:00 pm and asked that all the garbage be kept picked up (which it was).

The NCC had early advised Jane Scharf in a meeting on July 30 th that they would not be pressing charges for 24 hours. Therefore we expect trouble at 2:00 pm today.

Some local unions have offered to come down and help us avoid a confrontation with police by increasing our numbers at 2:00 pm.

The campers say come one down and join us the weathers fine and the rates are free for camping.

More later.

Protest, Resist and Surpass, Jane Scharf
