Rent is Theft, Housing is a Human Right
Sun Jun 24 2007
A primer on housing in San Francisco
The housing situation in San Francisco is a prime example of the greatest evil of capitalism. Only those who can afford it get to be housed. Everyone else lives on the streets. They get trash talked by neighbors and politicians alike for the sin of being homeless. They are arrested or cited with “quality of life” citations.

This issue on Fault Lines includes a spread on housing rights and housings justice in San Francisco. The following short articles outline the housing crisis in San Francisco, tenants' rights, attempts to fight back against evictions, the evils of new condos in the Mission, and an explanation of the most important housing legislation.
