Homeless people and protesters in Abbotsford's Jubilee Park say they will fight a City order to leave the park or face an injunction.

On Monday, Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman told campers they had 48 hours to remove all the tents from the park, saying the nightly ceremonial fire and the risk of death from a drug overdose pose safety risks.

Campers say they are fighting against the city's policies around drug addicted people and those who are homeless.
