"...Come help craft a ballot measure to address tenant concerns...The SF Anti-Displacement Coalition was formed by tenant organizations and their allies who led the successful fight to curb condo conversions at City Hall..."

Well, obviously this form of politics hasn't been too effective, has it? Begging to City Hall pays the salaries of a few career left-liberal hustlers with M.S.W's, and it isn't doing jack to keep the rest of us from getting ripped off and kicked out of town.

This is a 100% losing strategy. It needs to be junked for effective direct action taking the problem to the source -- the wealthy business persons who are cashing in big time.
