Tue Jan 7 2014 (Updated 01/08/14) New Year's Day March Resists Developer-Friendly "Take Back the Plaza" Campaign in SF
"Cops and Condos Go Hand in Hand" FireWorks newspaper writes: Recently [in San Francisco], business owners have pushed to “Clean Up The Plaza.” This zero tolerance policy has forced out many while hipsters drink openly in Dolores Park. At the same time, developers have announced a new condo project at 16th [and Mission]. The developers need the police to sweep away the poor, while capitalism throws out thousands through evictions, high rents, and poor paying jobs. In turn, more young people are forced to illegally make money to survive, channeling millions into prison. The police are the foot soldiers of gentrification.

On January 1, people marched and rallied in San Francisco against the "Take Back the Plaza" campaign organized by wealthy business owners.
