    I live in canada and the eb and flow of the police state here and in the US is real. Im a traveller, a hobo, a vagrant, and ive been noticing how fucked up some of the laws are that combat homelessness. Its especially hard on people stuck in or around cities but it can be a huge pain or threat on a traveller aswell. Half the reason im anarchist is because i have zero faith in the beaurocracy to actually do fuck all. I know who makes the rules. The asshole that owns a casino and works for the local administrations, the official getting payed by the NRA or big oil or some other multinational, or some lawyer that lives half the year in some summer home in the Galapagos ir whatever. Rich scumbags that dont know or care about the plight of the common man.

    So making it illegal to sit, sleep, camp, feed people, beg, etc is becoming the norm in alot of north american cities. Which at its core is contrary to the constitution and canadas charter of rights and freedoms, but so what right? I just want to know if anyone has ideas on how to combat this outside of individual action and avoiding getting beaten and arrested by asshole pigs. What can we do as a community?

    I was inspired as fuck by the OCCUPY movement.

    Even Occupy was infiltrated as fuck, I was surrounded by snitches and Democrats, people screaming at me to take my balaclava off...

    food not bombs! getting a community together to feed those without homes no matter what the pigs say is great imo. maybe nothing can stop the filth from saying not having a home is wrong, but that doesn't mean you cant organize to feed and protect those who need it!

    It sounds to me like thise thqt are strugglijg to survive in urban areas should think rrurally. I've been doing urban exploration a bunch of subdivisions in no name cities have tons of squats that should be uutilized for housing others. Look I am all for subversive housing and sticking it to the man. Living free and away from nosey neighbors and draconian police laws to kick out homeless or traveling people's. If the city's albeit wherever doesn't want you to be there FUCK EM! Utilize a disguise be covert in actions. From 96' to 09' I did what I to do and loved it never got caught. It helps to also have a skill set for under table work and whatever else for income but as long as you find a spot that's waaaay the fuck out there and keep the pplaceclean and secure you should be good. If you do see rich kids with cameras doing eexplorationcare the fuck out of them so they don't ccme back. These are my 2 cent's on urban squatting and rural spotting be smart keep low profile and have a secure spot and you'll be good. Switching locks helps for securing a new home.

    The ones that reign are only concerned with power.
    Money is power these days.
    Homeless people don't contribute to the monetary system and the false ideology of economics, so they are criminalized.
    The masses are more concerned about their property, welfare and safety, conditioned to be affright for their fellow human being's instead of the ones robbing their freedom and fruits of their work every day.
    We anarchists have a huge job to do!
    I think it wil work best if we unite in spirit and act in person.
    Personally i try by looking for a way to interest the masses to further investigate what is going on in the world beside of what they are told on the national propaganda media.
    It is often frustrating trying to show people real life beside the synthetic version they know.
    Stray strong and have a good life !

    Fellow hobo here. We gotta band together and do productive shit, either in or outside of cities. Squatting and homesteading is where it's at. Pool resources with your homies. Make a pseudo-underground railroad for travelers, or people in general. Make it easier for people to be friends, and to have a life without work or rent. That's the idea, right? Government actions come and go, we can't concern ourselves with what the system does. We gotta learn to slip through the cracks, evade like hares, re-group like crows, resist like cockroaches, grow like dandelions.
