Event Type Other
Organizer/Authorby Bruce Allison and Thornton Kimes
At 2pm. on July 4th, the San Francisco Mime Troup performs in Dolores Park. At 4pm the bigger show begins, a take-over of a house taken from a family victimized by predatory lenders. Homes Not Jails, the lead organization in the San Francisco political squatting movement, teamed up with The Brass Liberation Orchestra, Tenants United, the Tenants Union, W.R.A.P., and the Housing Rights Committee. The location of the squat will be kept secret until the participants get there, which means some walking will be done! There will be a cook-out (food provided by...Food Not Bombs!) and, inside the building, the First Annual Unorthodox Housing Conference will get underway and all squatters are welcome to attend. This poverty skolar will be there. There will be "soap-box" public speaking outside the building. It is always a good time to aggressively resist the economical and ethical crimes of the predatory mortgage lenders, et al.
