URGENT APPEAL FOR HOUSING
As the Encampment to Stop the War continues, more and more activists are coming to from across the country to join it. At the same time, the temperature is dropping in the area, with thunderstorms expected soon. The police have begun enforcing the encampment's permit, which does not allow people to sleep on the grounds of the camp. They have threatened arrest to anyone they find sleeping there.

A church in the area, St. Stephens, has graciously been allowing activists to stay the night inside the church all week; however they will not be able to do so for the rest of the encampment.

This is an urgent appeal to people in the D.C. Metro area for housing. If you have any kind of space you can provide for people to sleep in, please contact 202-821-3686 and let us know as soon as possible. We need housing for Thursday through Monday nights. Even if you can only house someone for one night, it will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your continued support of the encampment.
