War and gentrification always benefit the capitalist class and is always against the needs and interests of the workingclass. That point will be illustrated by historian David Giesen in his
SF Anti-War and Anti-Gentrification History Walk:
Take a walk through the anti-Viet Nam War street action in San Francisco back in the 1960s. Then flash forward to the anti-war-in-Iraq action on San Francisco’s streets in 2003. Join historian and teacher David Giesen on a walking tour of a bit of San Francisco’s anti-imperialism gusto through the years, from the Philippines in 1898 to Lennar and Hunter’s Point in 2008. Along the way you’ll encounter the enduring evidence of territorial power and exclusion that increasingly divides San Francisco into haves and have-nots. By walk’s end you will “be in the know” regarding San Francisco’s now obscure Big Idea for making everyone a de facto land owner and rent collector. Meet at 10 am, 330 Ellis at the corner of Ellis and Taylor streets in San Francisco. (near Powell St BART station)
