UC-Berkeley converting 'People's Park,' haven for homeless and drug users, to student housing


BERKELEY, Calif – It appears even the famously hippy-dippy friendly administration at UC-Berkeley has had enough with the homelessness, drug use and petty street crime in a so-called "People's Park," which has finally been slated to be repurposed for student housing.

“This city has moved on well beyond its stereotype, well beyond the 1960s,” Dan Mogulof, a spokesperson for UC-Berkeley, told Fox News. “People understand that the current status quo serves no one’s interest, least of all the homeless people who occasionally use the park.”

For decades, People’s Park stood to some as a symbol of the free love, anti-war and anti-authoritarian movement that swept this northern California college town in the 1960s. From the “Bloody Thursday” protest of 1969 to 2011’s “tree-sits” against plans to develop more student housing, the park has long been a place of protest and controversy.

 Quoting: jake


Occasionally use the park?

It is their park.

It is a full time full on homeless encampment, drug store. The Rite Aide of illicit contraband, as well as a fare amount of homegrown party favors.

Is the implication these transients will disappear? They live there, eat there, sleep there. Many, many humans cal that small plot home.

What a liar he is.
