Eviction protest

From Hoodline:

This Thursday, July 28th, neighbors and members of the city's poetry community will rally to support 81-year-old North Beach poet Diego Deleo, who is set to be evicted from his home of over 30 years under the Ellis Act. The rally will be held at Washington Square Park from 12-1pm.

Deleo first learned of his potential eviction from his Chestnut Street apartment on July 1st, 2013, when landlord Martin Coyne sent notice of his intention to use the Ellis Act to remove Deleo from the backyard cottage that he and his wife shared for years until she passed away in 2012. The controversial California state law allows landlords to get out of the business of being a landlord as a last resort, but critics say that it's being used too frequently by real estate speculators to flip buildings for a quick sale...

Let's hope Scott Wiener jumps on this one, saving the soul of San Francisco. Of course it's different story when it's one of his buddys, like first people he put on the City payroll when he took office:, here on Gilligan's Island.
