One Man Protest at Gainseville Tent City

Francis "Pat" Fitzpatrick sat in City Hall on Thursday and declared he was starting a sit-in.
Thinking aloud, he debated if he would chain himself to the front door.
Fitzpatrick, an outspoken local homeless advocate, said he decided to do the sit-in to prevent a raid on Tent City, a group of homeless people living in the forests near south Main Street. More at Alligator Online.
Meanwhile other homeless people among the 150 who live at the tent city took advantage of outreach services to try to get out of homelessness. Alligator Online.
