Escape reality in Slab City

The ramshackle community, which according to one resident is owned by the State of California teacher’s union, takes its name from the giant concrete slabs it is built on. The alternative community is now home to almost 2,000 people include jobless and financially struggling recession refugees who can no longer pay for food and housing. A hundred or so are permanent residents.

Check out this documentary depicting this refugee camp for those that want to live an alternative life-style – the last place in the US for living free.

The concrete is all that’s left of the World War II training camp where a group of servicemen decided to stay put after it was decommissioned at the end of the war.
