Over 50 rebels caused delays and disruptions in the tech bus pick up zone in front of MacArthur BART this morning in Oakland. An Apple bus, Google bus and Yahoo bus were all surrounded and blocked for over half an hour until OPD and BART cops pushed the demonstrators off the street.

Over 50 rebels caused delays and disruptions in the tech bus pick up zone in front of MacArthur BART this morning in Oakland. An Apple bus, Google bus and Yahoo bus were all surrounded and blocked for over half an hour until OPD and BART cops pushed the demonstrators off the street. At one point, masked protesters climbed atop the Yahoo bus to the cheers of the crowd. The actions this morning were part of the Defend the Bay Area week of action. Defend the Bay is an initiative organized by comrades in the Bay Area to confront "issues of rent, gentrification, surveillance, the police state, real estate development, and the destructive impact of the tech industry on people's daily lives."

Gracias for these pics and for the protest.

Here's a new poster from Dean Johnson Fine Art design about gentrification and evictions in San Francisco:

Text: The Blue Techie speaks from behind the tinted windows of a luxury designer Tech Surveillance-State Industrial Complex Gentrification and Eviction shuttle. Their slogan: "We Help Gentrify San Francisco." The Blue Techie's red eyes, nose and mouth are a result of hours of partying and getting drunk and then staggering down Valencia or Market Streets in techie-gentrified San Francisco.

Chau,
