Rally to protect 87 year old holocaust survivor from cruel, greedy Alameda landlords

On Saturday afternoon August 24 in front of “The Dunes Apartments” at 2445 Shoreline Drive in Alameda, there will be a rally from 3:00PM through 4:00PM to protest against the eviction of holocaust survivor Musiy Rishin, to let Alameda landlords Margaret Tam and Spencer Tam know that the eviction of Musiy Rishin is unacceptable.

Musiy Rishin, 87 years of age, a Section 8 tenant voucher holder who has reportedly resided at The Dunes Apartments in Alameda for the last 17 years may have survived the Nazis and the holocaust, but rent-control activists and local humanitarians are wondering if he can survive the cruel, and greedy owners of the Dunes Apartments, landlord's Margaret Tam, and her son Spencer Tam.

According to an August 18 report in The Guardian, by Sam Levin, “Musiy Rishin knows how to survive.

According to Sam Levin, "He narrowly escaped the Nazis’ massacre of Jews in the Ukraine in 1941. His family lived through wartime famine, and an earthquake in Uzbekistan, before they fled political turmoil in 1998. He persevered after the recent deaths of his wife and son."

But now, the 87-year-old is faced with a threat that he is afraid he won’t survive: his California landlord is evicting him to bring in wealthier tenants, and he has nowhere else to go.

“Will they start literally throwing me to the ground?” the disabled Holocaust survivor said on a recent afternoon, seated inside his living room of 17 years in Alameda. His family found refuge in this northern California city after they were forced to leave Uzbekistan. “I am an elderly man. Aren’t you ashamed? Don’t you believe in fairness? They have no soul and no heart.”

Reportedly, the greedy landlords Margaret Tam, and her son Spencer Tam have been trying to evict Rishin for a year, and have also targeted his terminally ill son, Yaroslav, who resided in the same apartment with Musiy Rishin until he died last April.

Additionally, it was reported that the cruel, greedy landlords listed the reason for the eviction is “desire to lease the unit at a higher rental rate”. Reportedly, the cruel landlords sent numerous termination notices and threats to evict to the Musiy Rishin family while his son Yaroslav was fighting cancer and when he was in hospice care.

According to the Alameda County Assessors office, The Dunes Apartments in Alameda at 2445 Shoreline Drive, Alameda, CA 94501-6213, have a total net taxable value of $15,405,072.

According to the records of the Secretary of State in California, The Dunes is listed as the Alameda Dunes LP with Spencer Tam listed as the agent for service of process, and Alameda Dunes LP is in a partnership with Tam-Diamond Bar, LLC, in Nevada.

Corporation Wiki links Spencer Tam, Emily Geho and Margaret Tam together as members/owners of Tam-Diamond Bar LLC.
