World Homeless Action Day in San Francisco

On October 10, 2012, Homes Not Jails briefly occupied a building in solidarity with the 3rd annual World Homeless Action Day. Beginning with a rally at 5pm in Dolores Park the crowd had marched to the occupation site on Castro Street. But San Francisco police quickly raided the site and arrested 20 people. Unusually, most were charged with burglary, conspiracy and vandalism.

Homes Not Jails reclaims vacant space to provide housing through direct action and protest the criminalization of homelessness.
