Eviction Free SF to join national public interest groups at Google Headquarters Annual Shareholders Meeting
Who: Eviction Free SF
What: Protest at Google Shareholders Meeting
Where: Charleston Park near Shoreline Blvd, East of Hwy 101, Mountainview, CA
When: 1pm at Google Headquarters, Mountainview
On Wednesday, May, 14, Eviction Free San Francisco and the tenants of 812 Guerrero, fighting eviction by Google’s lawyer, Jack Halprin, will join a group of national public interest groups at a rally at Google’s annual shareholder event in Mountainview, CA. This event Jack Halprin bought the building recently, and after initiating an Owner Move-In Eviction on a first unit, and a questionable, possibly unlawful Domestic Partner Move-In on a second unit, has moved to displace the rest of the tenants with the Ellis Act.
This protest is following the google bus block and march demanding Jack Halprin withdrawal the eviction.
The tenants of 812 Guerrero’s goal is to raise awareness, within Google, of the unethical behavior of their employee, and to demand they take responsibility for his behavior - requiring him to withdraw the eviction.
Google Claims to adhere to the values of community involvement and preservation (in its own words) core value: “9) Google cares about and supports the communities where we work and live.
· We encourage and enable our people to support local community involvement and expect them to participate.”
We hope that Google will acknowledge that Mr. Halprin’s behavior is antithetical to this core value, and in fact undermines and damages the very communities they purport to care about.
In addition, Mr. Halprin is removing 6 units from the rental market, an action that others like him have repeated many times across San Francisco in recent years. This actually contributes to a shortage and rising cost of properties that Google itself would wish to be available for new employees coming to the Bay Area.
Timing: Rally at Google Headquarters, 1pm.
