Let’s get organized together.
The tides of gentrification threaten to wash away what remains of Oakland. The rent is too goddamn high and the Town is drowning. In the spectacle of this commodified landscape, the class resentment simmering underneath ‘economic development’ has become a powder keg. We’ve seen how France responds to a small rise in the cost of living. How Haiti responds to the destructive force of inflation. The Bay Area housing crisis weighs on us like a thousand gas taxes. If not our homes, at least the streets remain ours!
After being on the defensive for so long, it’s time to take the offensive. This means demanding real concessions from landlords and shifts in the housing market. And if these aren’t given over, we will organize them ourselves. For lower rents and tenant control of housing! Toward the abolition of rents and housing for all!
Monthly assemblies are TANC’s public meetings, open to all. If you’d like to get to know us and find out more about our organizing, this is a good opportunity!
