NO MORE EVICTIONS, GENTRIFICATION, DISPLACEMENT, CRIMINALIZATION of Poor Peoples of color locally and globally

Join POOR Magazine in a revolutionary
TAKE BACK THE LAND (and give it back to the indigenous peoples it was STOLEN from) CEREMONY

If you are a community member or organization Anywhere in the Bay, please join us as a co-sponsor, testifyer, and/or co-leader in a Revolutionary/Visionary "taking-back-the-land" Ceremony in front of our building at 7th and Market
and give it back to the indigenous people it was stolen from.

When: Thursday, August 7th
Ceremony: 8:00 am
Press Conference: 9:00 am
Where: The Land, The Tierra
in front of 1095 Market street @ 7th Street (Above the Civic center BART)

From the Fights in The Mission, to The Bayview, to Oakland to Richmond to New Orleans to El Salvador to DQ University and beyond we will coalesce our struggles with the voices, prayers, poetry and actions of indigenous elders, poverty, race, disability and migrant scholars from all over the Bay who have dealt with eviction, displacement, gentrification, homelessness and criminalization. Following the Ceremony we will be going to a hearing on the future of the building called by Chris Daly in front of the Rules Committee of the SF Board of Supervisors - we need you to walk with us and make your voices heard!!! - AS poor people of color we MUST stand together to make sure we are not silenced, eradicated and ENDLESSLY displaced! This is just the beginning of this strategy which we hope will spread across the globe!

To become a Testifyer, co-sponsor organization or collaborator, call (415) 863-6306.
