Photos by Ramona Mayon Nov. 18, 2020 7 to 11.30 am “sweep” of Great Highway and Balboa encampment (these were taken to show the site was near no business or residence entrance or public bus stop; site was not overcrowded or filthy; tents were 6′ apart; sidewalk had 6′ or more passage).
Me: We need written notices for people, sir. Why were there no written notices, sir? Who is in charge of giving written notice on the tents?
Me: They have rights. The CDC says they can’t be moved. And they have a right to have an encampment and have a system.
Other plaintiff: Ramona (mumbles)
Me to other plaintiff: I know they can arrest me for that.
Me following SFFD: SIR, the LAW is being broken. Just because you are the fire dept. and police you CAN’T just BREAK the RULES!
Park Ranger lady: So…
Me: Sir, excuse me, sir.
SFFD: You are going to have to give me some space.
Me: I am right here. I am recording this.
SFFD: I understand.
Me: Now I want to know why the people did not get — WHO gives them the written notice? SIR, these people are supposed to have written notice that this is happening. I am taking this to court tomorrow. WHY did these people not receive WRITTEN NOTICE? WHO IS IN CHARGE, SIR? Sir, sir, who is in charge of giving these people written notice?
Me: No. You have to obey the law.
SFFD: I will speak to you again, but I do have to work…
Me: I understand that but why…
SFFD: Thank you
Me: But they are not supposed to be being moved. They have not agreed to shelter. They have not agreed to shelter.
SFFD: Ma’am, I can’t engage with you right now because I’m helping other folks.
Me: I’m filming you to take you to court. So I understand the Fire Dept. is in charge of things here has not given notice to anyone written notice and is not obeying the CDC rules, resolution, SIR, sir, SERIOUSLY, you are going to court tomorrow.
