A year ago, the largest tent encampment in #Denver was cleared in the morning of November 30, 2020, displacing 300+ tent residents. The same location-- 29th & Arkins--is being swept tomorrow morning, where people have again found refuge and a place they call home.

This video is of a press conference held two days before last year's sweep. Residents at the encampment highlighted that they had nowhere to move to, and how the area at 29th and Arkins was where they wanted to stay.

“Just because we’re houseless does not mean we do not have rights. We have the right to lay our head down the same as anybody else. We ain’t got nowhere to go — we ain’t got no choice but to stand.” -- Wolf, one of the Arkins encampment residents from October 2019-November 2020.
