OUR MiSSiON ~ NO EViCTiONS Community Action for Dia De Los Muertos will be on Saturday, NOVEMBER 2, 2013 at 6:30 PM.

We will gather in front of BRAVA & CASA SANCHEZ on 24th Street between (Hampshire St. and York St.)

We all feel the death in the Mission by the forced displacement of familias, artist, seniors & residents who have lived here for decades & have contributed to the formation of the Latino cultural identity of our Barrio.

We are under attack by speculators, developers, and new residents who love our culture but don't care about us residents & local merchants. The impact they are causing to our familias, residents & merchants has created a CRISIS!

The tech industry was given tax incentives & breaks by the City of SF to be in SF and their employees along with greedy speculators have caused increase in rents & property.

Our annual Dia de Los Muertos has been invaded by these new residents who think its a Mexican Halloween party & drink beer, get drunk & disrespect our cultural sacred tradition.

We are taking back our dia De Los Muertos cultural procession which this year is dedicated to XOCHIPILLI (Aztec God of Flowers, Poetry & Musica) & XOCHIQUETZAL (his twin sister). This year is a new calendar cycle,marks an era of rebirth, enlightenment & the evolution of a higher consciousness towards mother earth & all life.

In the spirit of unity and community we are asking you to wear black, bring candles, flowers, poems and photos of love one.

We will have Our Mission No Eviction Dia de Los Muertos t-shirts!

We are a coalition of neighbors, community organizations, and local merchants opposed to the rapid pace of displacement/evictions in the Mission, destroying the cultural and social fabric of the neighborhood.

A cross section of the community united to create policies and long term solutions to stop these evictions.
