Encampment in North Minneapolis threatened with destruction by the city on February 26th


This is a press release put out by Near North camp residents and supporters.

One week ago, a director within the Office of Community Planning and Economic Development, Erik Hansen, placed notices of demolition on the tents of structures of houseless residents living on formerly vacant land, ordering this community to leave their homes with nowhere suitable to go during dangerously cold temperatures. The current standing is the threat of eviction has moved to February 26th due to concern for police personnel to be participating during subzero degree weather.
