Santa Cruz: Condo Windows Smashed

On the 4th of July, amidst the tourist frenzy and sounds of fireworks, at least 8 windows were broken on a condominium that is being built in the lower Ocean neighborhood.
The homes that once stood there housed primarily Latino families. These families were evicted to make way for more expensive housing. This type of development raises the property values, which in turn, forces out more low-income and working poor people from the area. It is a clear example of gentrification in our town.
We will continue to attack the sites of gentrification when and where we see them.
You’re supposed to be smashing the state, not private property, you fucking nitwits!
