Thu Aug 14 2014Eviction Free San Francisco Occupies Vanguard Properties and Demands Eviction be Rescinded
On August 12, Eviction Free San Francisco occupied the offices of Vanguard Properties — the largest real estate company in the Mission. Not only is Vanguard directly driving up the costs of rents in the Mission and throughout San Francisco, but their co-founder, Michael Harrison, is Ellis Act evicting four units at 151 Duboce, home of Benito Santiago and other residents. Benito, 64, is disabled, Filipino, a teacher with the Unified School District, born and raised in SF, an artist, and has lived at his home for 37 years. He has nowhere else to go should the eviction go through. Speculator Harrison has Ellis Act evicted 9 units in the past, all through his alias Pineapple Boy LLC. Members of Eviction Free SF entered Vanguard at 21st and Mission, and before being harassed and physically dragged out, demanded that the eviction at 151 Duboce stop immediately.
