Hey, fellow citizens!
For people who have recommended just sleeping in the streets or parks, that's an unsafe idea for many people, particularly young women such as myself or people who are older, or who have a disability. I think we need to keep this protest open to all sorts of people, not just strong, fast, young activist guys who are okay with sleeping on the streets and all.
Just wanted to follow up on this topic, especially since I and my BF have already committed to going (flight tickets and everything), and nowhere to sleep for the days before the event. We had some friends who offered their couch to us, but then changed their minds for unrelated reasons. Hotel rooms cost too much, and hostels are basically all full. Anyways, just in general I didn't see any information on housing beyond that initial post. Thoughts?
P.S. If you or anyone you know would be willing to house us for the days leading up to the event, we could pay you, and/or offer labor or some kind of trade? We are very trustworthy, nice, clean, responsible, etc.
