Reclaim the streets-renters rise up!

Saturday May 31st, 2008 7:35 PM
They’re trying to get rid of rent control in San Francisco through Prop 98, so we decided we’d throw a party to get the word out and to celebrate the city we all live in! Meet us in the streets at the end of May to dance, sing, resist and take the streets!

Renters Rise Up is first and foremost a party. It is a community party, being thrown for anyone who wants to participate by anyone who wants to help plan it. And what better place for the community to have a party than in the streets?

Why are we having this party? Why does anybody have a party? To celebrate.

And what are we celebrating? We are celebrating ourselves and our communities. We here in the Bay Area live in a pretty amazing place. But it is the people of the Bay Area who make it what it is. And let’s face it. We here in the Bay Area are pretty kick-ass people.

If that wasn’t reason enough to have a dance party in the street, right now we need to stand up and appreciate what we have made here. Because we and our communities are under attack.

This is because rent control, the law that makes cities like San Francisco affordable to regular working people, is in danger of being overturned.
