--repost widely please--

For nearly 2,000 posts written or forwarded by homeless and ex-homelsss
people, see HOMELESS PEOPLE'S NETWORK ARCHIVES.  Nearly all posts focus on
policy and programs affecting us.  April threads are listed below.

Hot topics in our dozen or so posts daily include: squatting, innovative
housing, the criminalization of poverty and difference, plus homeless
people's civil, economic and housing rights.

HPN is a half year old Internet discussion group for homeless and
ex-homeless people.  Many who post are also activists, academics or service

We hail from three continents and seven nations.  Views vary widely on our
uncensored list.

If you've been homeless or are now, I invite you to subscr_be.

For details on us, see HPN URLs below.  Thanks.--Tom Boland, HPN listowner
