Stop Miami Beach's Criminalization of Unhoused Folx
On Wednesday, September 13, The Miami Beach City Commission will consider and vote on a proposal to authorize Miami Beach police to arrest poor people for sleeping in public if they refuse shelter and "services."
Shelter or jail is violent coercion, genocidal policy of internment of unhoused folx, and violates the rights to freedom of movement. This is especially horrific considering that there are no jails nor available shelter beds in Miami Beach. The majority of unhoused folx are black — thus police would be forcibly removing them from the City at night, back to the mainland of Miami for internment.
Miami Beach would be a sundown town, again.
Email the City Government to demand that they reject this proposal!
