Photograph caption dated December 17, 1986 reads, "Members of the Los Angeles Union of the Homeless carry signs in protest of the city's planned closing of the San Julian Shelter for the Homeless in downtown. The protesters also held a news conference yesterday at Sixth and San Pedro streets and criticized the shelter management, claiming that those who sleep at San Julian must be up by 5 a.m. to stand in line for three hours to reserve a space in the shelter for the next day. They also said that the shelter is locked up by 7 p.m. and residents are physically abused and harassed."
