On Sunday, April 6, Homes Not Jails took over a building in San Francisco's Mission District that has been empty for two years. The occupation lasted for 24 hours until the SFPD and the landlord came battering at the door. The house is the former home of 80-something Jose Morales, who had lived there since 1965 and fought off eviction attempts for 14 years.
