Anti-Gentrifier Pukes on Yahoo Bus

Make sure you aren't eating lunch while you read this. We're seeing reports about a tech bus blockade over in Oakland this morning, but one that included bodily functions. That's right, an angry anti-gentrifier purportedly barfed all over a Google Yahoo bus windshield while surrounding tech buses at the Oakland McArthur BART station. If you don't believe us, look no further than Twitter:

Okay, now we feel kinda sick.

The puke was part of the Defend the Bay Area week of action, which is basically a chance for everyone to confront "issues of rent, gentrification, surveillance, the police state, real estate development, and the destructive impact of the tech industry on people's daily lives."

The blockade -- which included about 50 people -- stalled traffic for 30 minutes or so.

That's all. Now you can go back to eating your lunch.
