A protester said, “We want the class, which is becoming the tech class, to listen to our voices, and listen to the voices of folks that are being displaced.”

The protesters brought a banner, displaying “Eviction Free San Francisco.” They also spread put posters titled “San Francisco: A Tale of Two Cities.”
