During the coronavirus pandemic, tents have been springing up on sidewalks around the city.
City crews showed up at the homeless encampment around Morey Middle School early on August 5 and started clearing out the camp. A group of protesters led by Denver School Board member Tay Anderson staged a sit-in, stopping the flow of traffic eastbound on 13th Avenue at Emerson, forcing Denver Police Department officers to stand in the intersection to protect the group from oncoming traffic.
