Anonymous threatens Sacramento over treatment of homeless protesters, hunger strike imminent at City Hall

On Monday, a source told me that “Anonymous was coming to Sacramento” to involve itself in the homeless protest at City Hall.

And now, a few days later, there’s this video on YouTube:

In this alleged Anonymous video, the group requests that Sacramento issue a moratorium on enforcement of the anti-camping ordinance. If that doesn’t happen, “we will bring the formidable talent of Anonymous to your city,” the narrator stated.

The Sacramento Bee first reported the video, and a police spokesperson told the Bee that its “intelligence department is keeping an eye on it.”

In other City Hall protest news: No arrests since Monday Mohammed Abughannan was arrested this morning, just after midnight, for the second time this week.

At city council this past Tuesday, homeless protester James “Faygo” Clark announced his hunger strike, which will begin this coming Tuesday, January 12. He will continue to strike until council members meet with his coalition.

At the meeting, he also told the mayor and his fellow electeds that the anti-camping ordinance “targets an action that is inseparable from the status of homelessness.”

“In order for a person that lives on the streets to survive, they must have warmth. Such as sleeping bags, tarps, blankets—things that protect them from the elements.”
