A discussion with people who were there recalling what happened and how lessons we might have learned then could apply to the struggle now.
In 1998, The Mission Yuppie Eradication Project began wheat-pasting provocative posters in the Mission suggesting that people fight back against the gentrification of the neighborhood by vandalizing yuppie cars and businesses.
October's Long Haul oral history project will discuss responses to gentrification and review what's happened to the Mission over the last decade with people who participated in MYEP. The oral history project happens at Long Haul the third Sunday of every month.
