Dozens of occupiers from San Francisco were arrested this evening after taking over a vacant building belonging to the Archdiocese of San Francisco. The group was working on turning the space into a “into a social center, shelter and food bank for the people.”
“This action on Sunday is not a temporary protest but a permanent occupation intended to establish a social center,” organizers wrote in a statement. “We will transform this vacant building into a productive and vibrant space, just as we did in the plaza occupation, and we wish others to take similar actions and more.” via
Ok… so let’s have this empty building rot instead of having it be turned into a shelter for the homeless? While thousands of people are on the streets of San Francisco hungry and homeless, OSF gets arrested for trying to provide a space for them.
