MORE THOUGHTS ON SQUATTING IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, $?, 8½” x 11”, 14 pgs.

Sep 22, 2022

A collection of samples of one author’s writings on squatting originally published in the quarterly independent newspaper, Slingshot. Included are reviews of a book of conversations with creative U.K. activists, squatting in New York City, East Bay Homes Not Jails, and a specific history of Hellarity House, a group living experiment/squat in Oakland, Calif. The small slices of writings about and around the Bay Area squats are bittersweet to read, feeling the struggle of trying to survive and thrive in a city that has become mostly unlivable unless you’re a tech bro or feel like spending the entirety of your paycheck just to have a roof over your head. –Tricia Ramos ([email protected], squattheplanet.com)
