Article:
    At the Salavation Army; if all beds designated for
the homeless individuals in Austin would be only
54....... 

    This does not even put a dent into the homeless
population on the streets of Austin.....estimated by
the local service
    providers to be anywhere from 3,100-6000. 


    There have been at least 17,499 camping tickets
given out since October of 1996.... 

    This tells me there is something wrong with this
system.... 
    ..They say they have shelter for us....but when
the shelters are full...and there is no place there to
sleep...... 

    Yes we will find a kind place to lay our weary
heads...yet...... 

    you say it is illegal for us to get a night's
sleep......... 

    We say.....let us be ourselves..... we able to
maintain our camps... 

    We are people........ 

    We are artists,musicians, crafters, teachers, tour
guides....... 

    We must be allowed to be.......... 

    The camping ban is unconstitutional for the Eighth
and First Amendendmant of The U.S. Constituition

    This is blatantly unconstitutional
