"There are more people forced to sleep on the street than ever in Oakland and we are dying on these streets," said Aunti Frances Moore, one of the co-leaders of the Stolen Land /Hoarded Resources Tours that have traversed the United States since Earth Day 2016 when the first tour launched in San Francisco.
 
From Berkeley to Oakland to San Francisco the lives and belongings of unhoused peoples are consistently criminalized, harassed and stolen. Most recently in Berkeley they have banned the act of sleeping in your own vehicle and in San Francisco the mayor has adopted a policy of taking peoples tents leaving them exposed and in even more vulnerable to the elements while they try to sleep houselessly.
 
"As we resist the state and cities' criminalization of our unhoused bodies, and the privatization of all public spaces from streets to libraries, we also need to talk about the hoarding of land and resources by private developers and speculators-in the wake of Mama Earth's increasing destruction and poisoning we need to stop the buying and selling of Mama Earth." said Lisa tiny Gray-Garcia, a formerly houseless single mother,co-founder of Homefulness the co-leader of the Stolen Land/Hoarded Resources Tours and co-author of the just released Poverty Scholarship - Poor People-led Theory, Art, Words and Tears Across Mama Earth.
 
These States of Emergency are why houseless and formerly houseless, criminalized, bordered, indigenous, disabled and incarcerated members of the poor peoples movement known as POOR Magazine/Prensa POBRE launched the Stolen Land /Hoarded Resources Tours in 2016, following the police murder of unhoused houseless Mayan brother, Sun and husband Luis Demetrio Gongora Pat in San Francisco
