Exodus From The Jungle: The Story Of That Morning

The Jungle, located on Story Road across from Happy Hollow, is one of the largest homeless encampments in the United States with close to 400 residents at the time of its dismantling. On December 3rd, the City of San Jose sent contracted cleaning crews and San Jose police to remove all residents from the Jungle and begin the removal of all their possessions. Andrew Bigelow, an artist and local organizer in San Jose, was there the day of the removal to cover the story with Fernando Perez (videographer) and Charisse Domingo (photographer) of De-Bug. Andrew has been working with the community at the Jungle and advocates for its residents for over a year. This is his first hand story of what happened that morning.
