STOP SEATTLE'S "HOMELESS JUNGLE" SWEEP

	Here in Seattle, the local city officals are gearing up to
bulldoze a homeless jungle in the SW area of town.  A coalition of groups
(including FNB) are opposing this action & trying to negotiate with the
city to work out some compromise deal (open another emergency shelter,
etc.).  I write *trying* because the city won't set a date to meet with
activists.  For more info, the best place to contact is: Seattle
Displacement Coalition, #206/632-0668.
