The clip interview with coalition for homeless from Dark Days (2000) COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS our first response because of the long relationship that we've had with our clients was to immediately go to court previous to amtrack's decision to evict people out of the tunnel we had just sued amtrack on the grounds they cannot through people out of pen station they travel here in ny city (?) so when we found out that amtrack was gonna come in ... (?) we knew we had to stop them throwing people out of the tunnel who had called it their home for 10, 15,25 years we met with amtrack officials at first they were very abrupt they wanted everybody out had it been a few days they were gonna fence it off, put in security guards we worked at a plan that we would assist people in moving into temporary shelter with amtrack ... (?) people but soon thereafter we learned of a program run by the fellow government who had set up an aid program and we garanteed amtrack that nobody would be left inside of the tunnels the section a program, the housing program here in ny city is a great ticket into housing it garantees someone an apartment health paid ...(?) and security fees so it was a perfect chance and i think amtrack knew that it's a good opportunity to work with advocates rather than have a legal challenge and ... (?) we were pretty confident had we gone to court, we would have won it was crystal clear, a violation of people's rights we didn't want to defend people to live on the street we wanted to get them into housing that was the ultimate goal and we're glad it never went to court right you ready ? go !
