why test on animals when there are prisons full of rapists
because the prisons aren’t actually full of rapists
the rapists run free and the prisons are full of people charged with weed possession

A 98-year-old San Francisco woman said this week that she is being evicted from her apartment after 50 years, and she’s never once been late paying her rent.
KRON reported that Urban Green Investments is using the 1986 Ellis Act to kick Mary Phillips out of her apartment so the company can cash in on the surging real estate market in San Francisco. The Ellis Act allows landlords to evict tenants if they are getting out of the rental business.
“I’ve been very happy here,” Phillips explained. “I’ve always paid my rent, I’ve never been late.”
Phillips, who is one of many the low-income families and seniors being evicted, has vowed to fight the eviction because she has nowhere else to go.
“I didn’t sit down and cry, I just refused to believe it,” she said. “They’re going to have to take me out of here feet first.”
“Just because of your age, don’t let people push you around,” she said.
According to the San Francisco Tenants Union, tenants fighting evictions done through the Ellis Act often win their cases.
The group Vanishingsf, which fights the “hyper-gentrification on San Francisco communities,” has encouraged people to protest Phillips’ eviction.
“Who evicts a 98 year old woman?” a post on the Vanishingsf Facebook page asked.
“Feel free to let Urban Green CEO David McCloskey, who’s evicting her, know what you think, ask him how he sleeps at night and if he’d put his grandmother on the streets. David@urbangreeninv.com (415) 651-4441 http://www.urbangreeninv.com.”
If you do one thing today, please let it be voicing your extreme disgust at the greed and blatant disregard for compassion that is the bay area housing market. Please take a minute to tell someone they’re a piece of shit.
