Ayisha Pelpon and others of HOMES NOT JAILS, and Ted Gullickson of the SAN FRANCISCO TENANTS UNION, will speak on their fight against the class and ethnic cleansing taking place in our city today.

POSSIBLE SPECIAL GUEST: OCCUPY BERNAL

HOMES NOT JAILS formed in San Francisco in 1992 to advocate for the use
of vacant and abandoned housing by people who are homeless. With folks
dying on sidewalks in front of empty buildings, affordable housing
advocates and poor people converged to find ways of utilizing such
properties, making a loud public statement of their discontent in the
process.

"Homelessness & the exorbitant cost of housing is a crisis that many in
San Francisco, the U.S.A., & the world appear to accept as "the way it
is." There is even a myth that living on the streets is like a
vacation.

Or-- come to our weekly Tuesday night meetings, 8pm, at the Housing Rights committee, 417 S Vann Ness

Since 1971, the SF Tenants Union has been fighting for the rights of
tenants and for the preservation of affordable housing in San
Francisco. From the struggle for rent control in the 1970s to 1998's
Proposition G (to end the abuses of OMI evictions), the Tenants Union
has been the city's leading advocate for tenants. The SFTU is 100%
membership supported and this enables our advocacy to be uncompromising
and immune to pressures from government or other funders.
