While a Minneapolis City Council committee received a presentation on a joint city-county "strategy to respond to homelessness," people recently pushed out of encampments and their advocates protested outside City Hall on Tuesday in Minneapolis.

People recently pushed out of several homeless encampments protested outside City Hall for the second day on Tuesday, camped beneath a banner reading, "Stop the sweeps. No evictions on stolen land."

Inside, council members advanced a set of recommendations from housing staff to transfer city funds to Hennepin County as part of a strategy to let the county lead on providing services to people experiencing unsheltered homelessness.

Several former residents of the Near North encampment - cleared Thursday - pitched tents outside City Hall on Sunday night. On Tuesday morning, they woke to volunteers serving breakfast.
