Occupy SF: Protesters Take Over Catholic Church Building

Occupy SF is back in action — and just in time for Easter! The group last night stormed a vacant building that is reportedly owned by the San Francisco Archdiocese, which they plan to turn into a “permanent occupation” for the city's homeless.

Now why didn't Gavin Newsom think of that one?

The protesters' occupied the two-story commercial building, located at 888 Turk St., after an afternoon rally and march. The Chron reports that the building is the former music facility

of the nearby Sacred Heart Cathedral High School and located within sight of

archdiocesan headquarters at St. Mary's Cathedral.

But the real news here is that the protesters' occupation went down without a hitch; police were instructed by the Archdiocese to not mess with occupiers — just yet.
