  1. I think it’s great there’s this open-to-all Google Group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/sfbarentersfed

    You all may loathe the San Francisco Bay Area Renter’s Federation and their leaders and members for their housing and economic views, but you should give them their due for open debate on the web.

    Sure wish Plaza 16 or the progressives and the nonprofits with all their community “organizers” would develop a similar Google Group to share info and discuss strategies.

  2. The Station 40, 1061 Market (and the not mentioned Chinatown, 2 Emery Lane eviction) are important stories which help humanize the current housing crisis. They also helped to bring public awareness to the evictions, in some cases early enough to have them halted. Probably the only bright spot in the current housing crisis has been the effectiveness of city governement local groups and local blogs/zines/independant press at reducing no fault evicitons.
