The pro-war San Francisco Unified School District's Reflection and Action Working Group voted 12 to 1 to destroy Victor Arnautoff's outstanding, realistic historical mural at Washington High School in the name of promoting SFUSD values, which values certainly include their promotion of the military in our public schools known as Junior Reserve Officer Training or J.R.O.T.C., which has been protested over the years to no avail....

textWealthy South Beach Residents Organize to Stop Homeless Shelter by San Francisco Tenant
San Francisco is now a homeless camp, by definition a public health emergency, since there is now no affordable housing for those of us who make less than $100,000 a year, the entire workingclass, unless we are renting an apartment long enough to benefit from rent control. While the City of San Francisco is trying to build enough homeless shelters so that the homeless at least have a bed at a shelter, as is the case in New York City, the rich parasites in the new condominium area of South Be...

For the third year in a row, San Francisco had a very large women’s march on 1/19/19, a weekend when we celebrate 46 years since Roe v Wade legalized abortion in the US, with perhaps 100,000 people, wide enough to take up all lanes on Market Street, and long enough to go beyond 1 hour to pass a given point.

text11/6/18 Election: Labor’s Gains & Lessons by Housing for All
There were 2 litmus test issues on the ballot, Cal Prop 10 to extend rent control and vacancy control and SF Prop C to house the homeless. The opponents of these 2 crucial measures to put an end to California’s and San Francisco’s housing emergency are the Nazi Trump voters, regardless of which party they claim to belong to, as these are the 2 workingclass propositions. Since Proposition 10 could only get 36% of the vote, it will have to be put on the November 2020 ballot because the housin...
