Anti-Gentrification Attacks Hit Both Sides of Bay in One Day
Communiqués Claim Damage Done to Condo Sales Office, Developer's Office, and Coffee Shop
Two communiqués posted to Indybay claimed credit for attacks on three different gentrifying businesses in Oakland and San Francisco on April 28.

Of the San Francisco action, "anarchists" write: Last night we attacked the Sales office for the in-construction Vida Condos on Mission St. We added a new heavy-duty lock to their security gate and hit their facade with paint. this was just one small act of hostility in what will hopefully soon be a storm. We did this because they make a mockery of life. Despite their name, they offer only death with the mask of life. These developments, and all the others, deserve much more. We welcome further creative contributions. it is easy to attack! down with gentrification! life is revolt!

Of the Oakland action, "vandalists" write: Early on Monday morning, locks were glued at Dogtown Development and at a new fancy coffee shop in the lower bottoms. The walls of Dogtown Development were painted to read: "Your Progress Reeks of Death." The coffee shop was painted to read "Yuppies Eat Shit." Fuck the developers. Fuck development. Attack.
