Occupy the Mission?

Pardon the macro-hood topic, but for those of you who are not aware,
Ed Lee is hoping to send the tent city that is Occupy SF to a vacant
lot at 16th and Mission (1950 Mission St.).

It’s a tricky issue, as the downtown protest is a major nuisance. But
I also remember the days of the tent cities under Division, invisible
to most people and easy to ignore. It seems a shame to go back to
that.

I’ve sent an email asking the mayor to try to find a better solution
to the problem. If you want to do so as well, here is the link:

  1. This seems like a non-starter. A spot in the Mission probably won’t placate the Occupy kiddies. They want the attention of being in a prominent location.

  2. This is true, but some of the homeless people are ready to take the city up on the offer. They should have services, not be sent to a camp in the Mission.
