Housing activists set one day tent city at Mt Pleasant and Lamont

Mount Pleasant is a neighborhood under seige, with upscale newcomers who can afford outrageous rents or condo mortgages pushing out longstanding residents. They are especially pushing out Central American/South American Indigenous folks, so this is effectively an extension of the Indian Wars.
