Open Housing Occupation, March & Rally
-- An International Celebration of Autonomy & Integrity --
Monday July 4, 4pm
Dolores Park, San Francisco, CA

Following the SF Meme Troupe's 2pm performance.
-- Theme of the meme... Integrity --

Make this July 4th a day to be remembered...

Join the rally in Dolores Park by 4pm so you won't miss the lively & lyrical march to the Open Housing Occupation site.

Festivities occurring both inside & outside will include: live music, free dinner (lovingly provided by Food Not Bombs), poetry, and direct action.

Housing must not sit vacant while people are forced to live on the streets. 2010 Census figures show 32,000 vacant housing units in The City while approximately 10,000 individuals remain homeless. People must not be evicted for profit. People's rights come before property rights. Come out and make your voice be heard. We realize the need to respect the freedoms of the individual while we embrace the need for collective empowerment, equitable communities, and mutual aid.

In 2005, there were an estimated 1 billion (yes, billion) people world wide living in squatted homes and in squatter shantytowns. By 2030, the projection jumps to 2 billion or one in four people on the planet. We will unite, we will fight, and ... we will win.

Actions are taking place in four countries this July 4th, providing a great opportunity to celebrate our autonomy and integrity. We are seizing the moment by creating liberated space and by gathering squatters and homesteaders from throughout the Bay Area to begin organizing a vital regional squatters syndicate based on autonomy, integrity, common resources, and mutual aid.

We are seeking additional overnight occupiers, musicians, performers, cooks, medics, liaisons, direct action heroes to coordinate with us, and additional solidarity events, so don't be shy.
