Garage Art on Oak Near Divisadero: The Gluten-Free Hipster Love Story is Gone, Marred by Graffiti – Here’s the Replacement

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

First it was all like this, a Hipster Love Story on Oak near Divis:

Divisadero Corridor, “keepin’ Divis real.”

That was last year. More recently, somebody put”FUCK YOU” atop that piece using gold spray paint.

(That’s the sort of thing that will get the landowner a fix-it note from SFGov.)

Anywho, it’s all gone now, baby.

Here’s the replacement:

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Appears as if this recent pro-gentrification bit from CW Nevius has garnered a reaction from the street.

I’d say the top suspects in this caper are the tens of thousands of people who have priced apartment rents in the 415 over the past few months.

Of course CW Nevius himself is a newcomer to San Francisco, but he likes increasing rents because he’s an owner, right?

Oh well.

District Five Meltdown: A Love-Letter from the Christina Olague Campaign to “Immature, Unfit” London Breed

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Don’t really get this one.

I thought the Olague / Rose Pak crew was going for a Heath Ledger Joker look, but that was just my imagination:

Anyway, it’s the word on the street, being illegally posted about D5 as you are reading this…

Video: “Black Bloc” “Street Battle” with SFPD on Oct 6 – “Fuck Columbus Day” – 22 Arrested in the Financh

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

Well, yesterday’s West Coast Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist March didn’t last all that long, as this four-minute video will show you:

OK then.

(The revolution won’t be televised but it will be on the Facebook, apparently.)

communique:

Columbus Day 2012 marks the 520 year anniversary of the genocidal and ecocidal project of Empire building and colonial expansion that began with the conquistador invasion of this continent and continues to this day through the daily violence and exploitation of global capitalism. 

It also marks the 20 year anniversary of the first American Black Bloc which disrupted the 1992 Columbus Day Parade in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. 

This year during Columbus Day weekend, a West Coast Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist convergence is being organized in San Francisco. As a contribution to this effort, we are calling for friends and comrades to gather at 2pm on Saturday, October 6 for a rowdy march through the heart of the city’s financial district. 

We will honor the memories of all those who fought back and resisted the onslaught of empire over the past five centuries by unleashing the power of our own resistance in the very heart of capitalism on the West Coast. We are proud to stand in solidarity with others whose fierce struggles continue to hold off the machinery of domination and exploitation. 

We draw inspiration from the countless struggles of indigenous resistance to capitalist projects of development and expansion: from the mountains of Black Mesa, where elders fiercely protect their way of life in the shadow of a coal mine, to the rebel autonomous municipality of Chéran in Michoacán, México where both the repressive forces of the state and the drug cartels have been expelled while loggers infringing upon indigenous territory have been chased off communal lands, to the far north of Canada where indigenous peoples block roads and disrupt plans for expanding resource extraction while students and radicals in Montreal riot outside the gates of the Plan du Nord summit. These brave fighters motivate us to spread the fires of resistance in the ongoing struggles against colonialism and capitalism. 

It is also fitting that October 7 marks the 11 year anniversary of the US invasion of Afghanistan, another brutal example of colonial domination’s recent manifestations. We invite all those who stand in opposition to Empire and in solidarity with the struggles of the Afghan people to join us on this march. 

The Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist March will gather at Justin Herman Plaza for a rally at 2pm and the march will begin at 3pm sharp. Stay tuned for additional details and ways to get involved. 

This action is part of the Decolonize the New World 2012: West Coast Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist Convergence in San Francisco during Columbus Day weekend. The convergence is being called for by Decolonize and Anti-Capitalist comrades in the Pacific Northwest and Bay Area.

Officer Injured, Weapons Recovered from Protesters in the Financial District on 10/6/12

On October 6, 2012 at approximately 2:50pm, a group of protesters gathered at Justin Herman Plaza.  The group began a unpermitted march west bound on Market Street.  The group, a number of them wearing black clothing, masks covering their faces, took to the streets disrupting the normal flow of traffic.  Officers arrived in the area and were struck by projectiles thrown at them by members of this group.  One officer was struck in the head and sustained non-life threatening injuries.  The protesters were admonished multiple times that the march was unpermitted and there were causing a public safety hazard. 
When the group failed to leave the roadway, Officers encircled them at California and Battery and the protesters threw flares and bags of paint at the officers.  Some of the bags of paint contained rocks.  A portion of this group ran to the area of Pine and Sansome where they were detained. A number of police officers and their uniforms were covered in paint.
Police made approximately 22 arrests from both locations.  The suspects were arrested on one or more of the following charges: conspiracy, riot, refusing to obey a lawful order from a peace officer and resisting, delaying and obstructing a peace officer, and assault and battery on a peace officer.  A lawful search of the arrested suspects’ backpacks revealed that many were armed with hammers, an ice pick, flares and other weapons and more bags of paint containing rocks.  The suspects vandalized vehicles and businesses as the walked.  Any witnesses to these acts of vandalism are encouraged to notify the SFPD.  Attached are photos of some of the weapons the protesters had in their possession.”
See you next year!

San Francisco Loves Again: F*CK MORMONS Banner Removed

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Things were a little hateful around the area of 606 Sanchez Street in San Francisco a few days back when people could see a large, fuchsia “F*CK MORMONS” banner from all around. While some caution against starting a holy war, others aren’t as circumspect.

The whole affair is still the talk of the town.

But lo, the offending message got taken down lickedy-split post-haste, even on a quasi holiday. Here’s the same scene from this afternoon: 

See? The houseboat house is now message-free. Credit for getting the sign down might go to Michael Thomas, a blogfather who seems to have a lot of pull in the area.

[UPDATE: Joe Vazquez burns the shoe leather and basically confirms the above here, but he also garners a flurry of quotes from the engineer in question.]

On to new bidness, the next big rally. They’re calling it the Million Gay March, or something. It should be under sunny skies, regardless.
