Occupy the Castro: 12/3: Milk Plaza:
Protest Evictions, Big Banks, Gay Inc

My old friend Tommi Avicolli Mecca, a stalwart of many social justice causes, is a key organizer in the upcoming Occupy the Castro protest and I'm helping spread the word about it. The basic info from Tommi:

There's going to be an Occupy the Castro action on Saturday, December 3 as part of a day-long protest organized by Occupy SF and tenant groups, taking place in several San Francisco neighborhoods. 

We'll meet at noon at Harvey Milk Plaza then go on a walk through the gayborhood to call attention to our concerns. 
We'll be demonstrating against the greed of the banks and realtors, the foreclosure and eviction epidemics, and the failure of Gay Inc to address economic justice for low-income LGBT people.

At the Human Rights Campaign store we'll present a demand letter asking that they start making jobs, housing, healthcare for all and town hall meetings top priorities. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are doing an ATM card-cutting outside Citi Bank. We'll also be hitting the Bank of America branch at Castro and 18th Streets.

Come join us!

I'll share more info about the December 3 Occupy the Castro action, as it becomes available. Please share the above poster on your Facebook page, blog or web site. Spread the word throughout your social networks.
