Concert to support ITW as it fights off eviction by the destructive forces of gentrification in la Misión.
ITW, or In The Works, is a Mission-based anti-authoritarian arts collective that is resisting the eviction of its favorite space at 17th and Mission. ITW has hosted many events in the Mission including Monday Food not Bombs at 16th and Mission since November 2011 and hopes to continue to stand against oppression creatively.
The attempt at eviction is part of a move to turn another block of the Mission into condos and upscale offices for Yuppies while the working class, families, and poor are pushed into the streets or out of the neighborhood entirely. Along with gentrification comes more cops, the homogenization of culture, and an increasing divide between the rich and the poor. ITW and its allies stand against this displacement and its unhappy results.
