Seniors, union workers and community supporters stopped tech company buses on August 1 at 24th and Valencia Streets to protest the epidemic of evictions caused by the City of San Francisco, which has allowed tech buses to bring thousands of Silicon Valley workers to the City, pushing up prices and evictions.
After blocking the buses, the protesters spoke about the growing eviction tide and what it means to them and the city. A tech worker from Apple was interviewed.
