    In other words, they didn't own the house they were living in, nor had any right to be in it.

    Daft indeed...

    They're a couple of husband-less bums who think they can get away with trespassing and theft.

    What they each need is a good husband who can provide for them, OR to find a better paying job (or another job) and start working to provide for themselves so that they can afford a place to live.
    Duly noted.

    Seems you missed the gentrification aspect of the article because you were simply too busy passing judgment upon them....meaning, you see what you want to see and superficially gloss over the gist.

    Typical and convenient conservative blind-spotting.

      Yes, because the pecuniary motive for gentrification escapes me!

      Boy, you're insightful.

        ya know, I probably wouldn't be able to find an affordable place to live in Manhattan, either. Or London or Paris or Berlin.


        If I moved to Manhattan or London or Paris or Berlin, I could claim to be "homeless" as well, which would, apparently, allow me to break the law

          It would?

            Seems you missed the point of this thread, which was pointing out the irony of women who bemoan the fact that some people own homes while others do not being kicked out of homes that they themselves did not own.

            Gentrification has nothing to do with this thread.

                On Monday, Moms 4 Housing held a rally outside the home, drawing hundreds who came out to support the women in protesting the gentrification of Oakland, and make clear they consider housing to be a human right.​​​​​​


                You daft?
                You are for sure. If a person can't afford a house in the city they live then they are supposed to move out of the city. It is what I had to do. You don't overtake property.
                Oh how I love the Word of God!

                Don't just hear the word and believe it---do it.

                  Go to a homeless shelter. Move out of that city.

                    If they want to be able to afford a home, they need to work for it.
                    Isn't it true that according to you, the basic essentials for survival aren't rights either, like food, water and any sort of shelter? Oh, and education etc? Shame for any kids caught up in such eh? But hey, never mind right?

                    Well this is fun isn't it?

                      The article says they were placed in a home legally.

                        You do during such a protest.....and usually get arrested, as they did.

                          Yes. Or protest.

                              Protest for someone getting removed from a house they aren't legally entitled to be in?

                                The way something looks is not a valid reason to trespass.

                                If you know a crime is about to be committed, to stop someone from being harmed in the commission of that crime you would need to trespass, THAT is a valid reason to trespass.
