To riff off of Janice Joplin,

"Come on, take another piece of my part now, brother,
Come on, take my part in making community. . .
You know you can take it,
If you got the title to land."

Come along on a walking tour that exposes the depth of our self-deception regarding the housing crisis in San Francisco.

Despite knowing that the rising land values in San Francisco real estate are the cause of evictions, displacement, and little-to-no-paycheck-left after paying the rent, who in the housing rights advocate army (or guerrilla brigades) is calling for socializing those land values to equalize housing access?

It's all short term thinking, and "go after commercial Prop 13 reform" yanking, sisters and brothers. Meanwhile, the land values go to the land owners, not to the community that generated those values. Instead, the cry is for inclusive housing even as the land values saturate the wallets of land owners.

Come along on a free walking tour that amounts to a religious call to demand the earth's rent be treated as the birthright of community. You've made your contribution to land values, why is it ending up in my pocket?

Led by Land Owners for Justice founder D. Giesen
