Wednesday, 6:00pm – 7:30pm, Let Ms. Iris Canada Back in her Home! (Change in location))
Ms. Iris Canada’s home
970 Page St.
100-yr-old Iris Canada is locked out of her home of over 50 years. We will demand justice from landlords and TIC owners who forced out our black elder for profit – they wish to condo convert the building to inflate the value of their private units, all of which were once rent-controlled apartments.
Ms. Iris Canada’s whole building was Ellis Act evicted for profit during the first tech boom, however, she won a life estate due to her age. She also won her most recent court case to stay in her home due to her age after enduring years of harassment by her landlords, yet the white judge also ordered her to pay her evictors’ lawyer fees of over $180K. This egregious, underhanded ruling was granted to effectively evict her, an example of how our unjust legal system skirts the law to benefit wealthy property owners.
On Friday, February 10th, the sheriff locked 100-year-old Iris Canada out of her long-time home in the Fillmore without notice to the benefit of three white landlords. Sheriff Vicki Hennessy, Judge James A. Robertson II, landlords’ lawyer Andrew Zacks, landlords Peter Owens, Stephen L. Owens and Carolyn Radisch, and the building’s TIC owners, especially Alexandre Apke & Anna Munoz, are all responsible for this eviction and elder abuse.

Thursday, 12 Noon, 1900 Mission Street – Public Hearing – Planning Commission
SF City Hall, Room 400
1 Dr. B. Carleton Goodlett Place
The developer proposes to demolish the still open Discount Auto Performance shop (SW corner of Mission and 15th) and build a 75′, seven story, twelve housing units over ground floor commercial building.
Some person(s) or group(s) unknown to me filed for a Discretionary Review after the Planning Department issued a Notice of Building Permit Application on August 22, 2016. Otherwise, Planning would have already approved the building permits.
