Ed Lie Exploits Elders - The Counter Recall Rally for SF Mayor Ed Lie
"He has pushed all San Franciscans out of San Francisco, he doesnt work for any of us, including the folks across the street, but he does work for the tech companies and the realtors," said Yayne to the small crowd gathered for the Recall Ed Lee rally.
Since Lee's administration which began under a cloud of lies, including him being a "reluctant" candidate, the murders of Black, Brown and unhoused people like Jessica Nelson Williams and Luis Gongora has risen, the percentage of Black people has dropped to 3% and unhoused people have been criminalized for the sole act of being unhoused with an alarming rate. Scores of elders 75- 100 years old have faced the crime of elder finaincial and physical abuse from eviction and it has been clearer everyday that Lee's goal has been to enable the final selling off of every last piece of land and resources to large corporate interests like Air BnB, Google, Uber, and Ron Conway.
He allowed a murderous po'Lice administration to continue administrating, shuttled in the selling of public housing on the private stock market, and looked the other way, ignored or straight up locked the door when people POOR Magazine.Idriss Stelley Foundation, Black Lives Matter, The Last 3% and so many more went to his office challenge him.
But today for me was the final straw. I already lost respect for this man who supposedly grew up in working class roots, even being involved in the "I-Hotel" fight for liberation in his younger years, but today he took it to a new level by practicing a blatant form of elder abuse.
As someone who has spent my life listening, respecting,loving and caring for elders as my job (I don't get paid for any of my POOR Magazine or community work) This took the exploitation, disrespect and elder abuse to a new level. Lee's actions are downright violent and abusive. He should not only be recalled, he should be charged with crimes against the people of San Francisco.
