OccupySF to Take Over Vacant Housing Tonight

​We blogged today about the seemingly lackadaisical agenda of the OccupySF protesters on Market Street — yoga, meditation, drumming. This morning as we came out of the Embarcadero BART station, one protester was dangling a dollar bill on a fishhook over the commuters walking up the steps. Well, now the Homes Not Jails group is claiming that the OccupySF members will actually take some action, joining them this evening to squat in vacant housing in San Francisco.
Homes Not Jails is a group that protests the lack of housing for homeless and low-income people by breaking into vacant buildings in San Francisco. They claim to have opened up hundreds of vacant buildings, giving homeless squatters a place to live since the organization was founded in 1992.

Tonight, they're planning a coup for World Homeless Action Day starting with a 5 p.m. protest. Then members will “occupy” at least 10 buildings simultaneously.
