Landlessness/Houselessness


The Organized Poor Pt 2 Poor People March on Washington and HUD in honor of Dr/ King's March on Washington

“We are surrounded by Black Cops”, said Leroy Moore, with POOR Magazine and Krip Hop Nation about the 15 black cops who surrounded us houseless and formerly houseless mamas, uncles, children, and elders from the Poor People’s March when we walked humbly into the Washington DC office of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to demand our housing back.

 

“We are here to meet with Ben Carson,” we all said.

Went Down to the Rich (Wite) Man’s House: Poor and Unhoused People March on Washington DC for their lives and self-determination

Well I went down to the rich man’s house- to take back what he stole from me- take back my dignity- take back my humanity…..

 

19th & shotwell are two of those streets /19th y Shotwell son dos de esas calles

Un Poema Para Luis-A Poem for Luis
(Español debajo)

The Streets have so many colors
the colors have so many memories
memories of streets you are no longer on-
but wish you could be

The color of people who are no longer there
who we wish we could see
because they were removed by people  who were scared
of what they could not contain, incarcerate or bear

19th & shotwell are two of those streets
who meet inside of so much grief

"Don't turn left, because that area is full of "bums" and it doesn’t reflect on the real "San Francisco“, the cab driver clicked his teeth together as he rattled on about which sights to see in his beautiful San Francisco (which ironically, due to a gentrification inspired eviction, he no longer lived in)

Indigenous Values, Traditions and Circles through the Spirit of Homefulness

‘It’s getting really wet, now’ I thought, wincing with every footstep from a screw in my ankle. ‘Soon, it’ll be coming down too hard to move this library.’ My shoulders aching from moving shelves, books, and boxes from Uncle Al’s and Mama Dee’s Living (Really) Public Library. I know however that Mama Dee sits there, watching me from the corner in her altar, occasionally giving me thoughts to keep moving forward. The spirit I feel in there is heavy.

Interview with a Sea Lion in Aquatic Park

A report of an aggressive sea lion at the city’s Aquatic Cove made the news recently. According to officials, 3 swimmers were attacked in a span of 5 days by what was described as “aggressive marine mammals”. Aquatic Park Cove is frequented by triathletes and members of the South End Rowing Club—among others—for the chilly waters than can get the heart pumping during an early morning swim.
