Blocking More Evictions from the GentryTechNation

“Transients and tourists- thats all this town was built for,” my mama said, disgustedly shaking her head at the stream of 20 something white people streaming out of the downtown BART station in San Francisco. I remembered my mamas wise words standing on the steps of 812 Guerrero today to block more evictions by the  21st century colonizers I have affectionately called the gentryTECHnation.
