Attend this walking tour taking up social movement analysis from a San Francisco perspective, and you qualify to join the street theater roster of the most acerbic critics of floundering housing-related public policy.

The walk alone is worth your time, but should you join with San Francisco Real Estate Theater's "I'm selling my backyard" just-about-anywhere street theater, you'll get
1) the low-down on real estate economics,
2) a riff off of The Golden State Warrior's tee shirt that reads, "Duped Nation,"
3) the proven best-ever attention grabbing gimmick in political situationist theater,
4) a pound of my backyard.

Regarding #4, I'm not kidding. Here's the story. I figure a pound of San Francisco dirt is worth about $100/lb. I intend to excavate down 45 feet in my yard, selling off nearly a billion dollars worth of dirt. In fact, that won't happen, but passersby really do bite" at this ploy, and it quickly leads to conversations about the dynamics of justice referencing society and geography.

If you're done with the Renters Union and BARF and PoorMe and politicians and do-gooders who simply won't address the question, "Is it right that one human being should pay another for mere right of access to earth?" then show up for this walking tour taking up social movements from the Mormon Diaspora of 1846 to the Occupy Movement of 2010, from the Black Panthers of the 60s to Back Lives Matter in 2016, from the back to the land movement of the hippie 60s to the "resilient communities" Milquetoast of 2016.
