#LandBack Proposal Given to UC Hastings & the SF Mayor By Houseless/disabled, indigenous youth and elders who are “Touring” the Tenderloin demanding housing and reparations for Thousands of houseless San Franciscans facing motel evictions
Houseless and formerly unhoused people will tour the Occupied Village of Yelamu aka San Francisco’s Tenderloin District where UC Hastings hoards Mama Earth while people sleep on the street and the Mayor plans to evict thousands of homeless folks from motels she begrudgingly granted them
What: Stolen Land/Hoarded Resources Tour thru the Tenderloin & #LandBack proposal presented
When: 3pm TODAY Monday, Nov 16th
Where: 1st Tour Stop UC Hastings- McAllister & Hyde street-corner – 2nd stop TBA
The Stolen land/Hoarded Resources Tours, loosely based on the Bhoodan Movement of India launched by Vinoba Bhave who walked through India asking wealthy “land-owners” to gift their land to landless peoples will be sharing a similar vision with SF poltricksters, akkkademik land-stealers & wealth-hoarders who are planning to evict thousands of Houseless mostly disabled, majority Black and Brown elders who are currently residing in motels onto the freezing San Francisco streets ( and 500 residents) four days before the holidaze.
“This is another example of London Breed’s absolute hate for poor and houseless San Franciscans,” said Wanda P, one of the houseless elders currently residing in motels who was given notice to leave on Dec 21st
We evict you, London Breed!” said Leroy Moore, disabled, formerly houseless co-founder of Homefulness and Krip Hop Nation.
“Mayor London Breed begrudgingly granted motel rooms to houseless San Franciscans because of the global pandemic, she never meant for any houseless people to be housed permanently only and the only reason we were in these motels in the first place is because its dangerous to be un-sheltered in a pandemic,” said Tommy P. a currently unhoused San Franciscan resident who was already evicted from a motel room in San Francisco.
“Academic insitutions like UC hastings have “bought” over two blocks of the Tenderloin district in Occupied Yelamu, (San Francisco), filed a lawsuit against the CIty for its “homeless problem” and hired private security to “sweep” houseless residents off the streets around “their” buildings, which is why we are proposing that UC hastings give-back one of these hoarded buildings to houseless residents of the Tenderloin so they can build their own housing like the Homefulness model and the Mayor cease and desist all evictions until permanent housing is secured, ” said “Tiny” Gray-Garcia, formerly houseless, co-founder of POOR Magazine and a resident and co-builder of Homefulness.
“Leadership requires making space for everyone. In a time of COVID on Winter Solstice, Mayor Breed is attempting to turn people out onto the streets without a plan in place. Creating the further dehumanization of people by not acknowledging them as fellow human beings. During this eight months of shelter in place, the leadership had time to create an alternative to the hotel vouchers, if they truly wanted to “fix” the problem. There are no new shelters, no-income/low low income housing built. There is no plan… The worst kind of Grinch, the mentality that was taught out of colonization…Colonization created poverty/Greed and homelessness. Facism creates laws that throw away other human beings and US Hastings is acting just as the royalty and gentry that use laws to sweep away human made conditions. Breed and Hastings Law school are on the wrong side of history. Leaders should create a better way for ALL not create more destruction,” Corrina Gould, Indian People Organizing for Change.
On this tour poverty/indigenous/disability skolaz will be sharing actual solutions to homelessness, not more hae and evictions, like the medicine of the BankofComeUnityReparations‘ Homefulness Housing Fund, funded by folks with hoarded wealth that enables poor and houseless people to “purchase” stolen Mama Earth so they can build their own self-determined housing /healing villages modeled after the Homefulness Project in Oakland.
“We come courageously, upholding our ancestors birthright; we come in peace offering the medicine of Redistribution of stolen land and hoarded resources… Ase” , said Aunti Frances Moore, Formerly Houseless Black Panther, Founder of Self-Help Hunger Program and Co-founder of Homefuness.
“I LIVE IN THE TENDERLOIN AND I WITNESS THE DESPAIR OF HOMELESS HUMAN BEINGS EVERYDAY TRYING DESPERATELY TO EEK OUT SOME TYPE OF AN EXISTENCE IN THIS UNSYMPATHETIC CITY! IT SEEMS AS IF THE BILLIONAIRE ROD CONWAY HAS MESMERIZED MAYOR BREED WITH HIS MONEY AND INFLUENCE. THERE IS A WAR BEING WAGED AGAINST THE HOMELESS IN SAN FRANCISCO AND THE TENDERLOIN IS ON THE FRONT LINE OF THAT BATTLE. GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND JOIN US!!! DARE TO STRUGGLE, DARE TO WIN, ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE,” said Malik Washington, San Francisco Bay View Newspaper.
We invite ALL fellow land liberators, reparators, CONfused but conscious wealth-hoarders,media producers, poverty skolaz, houseless folks, advocates, revolutionaries. UC students and community to join us.
As with all the previous tours we will be launching with All Nations Prayer for Ancestors and Mama Earth-

Herstory on the Tours:
This powerful nation-wide tour was launched in 2016 in the stolen village of Yelamu (San Francisco’s Nob Hill and Pacific Heights neighborhoods) and has so far “toured” wealth-hoarder enclaves such as SillyCon Valley, Beverly Hills, The Hamptons, Park Avenue and the Main Line of Philadelphia to name a few.
This tour through stolen indigenous land and the neighborhoods of the very rich, is led by 1st Nations Ohlone Warrior Corrina Gould, Poverty Skola” Lisa “Tiny” Gray-Garcia, fellow Race, Disability, Indigenous Skolaz from POOR Magazine/Prensa POBRE, and Leroy Moore from Krip Hop Nation. Co-sponsors so far include The Self-Help Hunger Program and Idriss Stelley Foundation.
“We homeless, working-class, Kaged/criminalized, disabled and 1st Nations people are peacefully crossing the visible and invisible lines that separate us poor folks from the “very rich” to ask them to begin the healing, change-making, process of decolonizing, redistributing and reparating their stolen and/or hoarded, inherited wealth and/or land ” Concluded Lisa Tiny Gray-Garcia, formerly houseless co-founder of POOR Magazine and author of Growing Up Homeless in America and the upcoming PeoplesTextBook- Poverty Scholarship – Poor People Theory, Art, Words and Tears Across Mama Earth
Two models that Homeless and 1st Nations folks are presenting is the poor people-led self-determined movement called Homefulness in Deep East Oakland (Huchuin Ohlone Land) as well as launch Homefulness movements in every city where unhoused and 1st Nations people dwell as well as the Sogorea Te Land Trust which is a Native Woman run land trust based in the land of the 1st peoples who lead it.
