Getting rid of Homeless means getting rid of Veterans

Homeless-Veteran-Sign1

Phil Ginsburg and the antagonists of our center have openly said that part of their goal in closing the Haight Recycling center is too prevent homeless people from having access to cash through recycling.

While our recycling center serves people who have nothing and people who have everything (see Danny Glover video, for ex.), we are still shocked at the open and vulgar attacks on those who don’t have homes.  We want to remind folks out there that 1 in 4 homeless men are Veterans.

Do you want to support a Park that prioritizes the removal of services that Veterans rely on?  If you take away recycling at our place to curb homelessness in the park, you are directly affecting the well being of Veterans who may rely on this income.  Is that how our city repays our nation’s protectors?

When you discriminate against homeless, you discriminate against Veterans.  Tell those loud privileged people to practice a little humility and have a little respect for the people who sacrificed so we could live freely.

Stay tuned for our next video that documents the homeless folks that sleep at McLaren Lodge every night-that’s Phil Ginsburg’s office.  In fact, McLaren lodge is a magnet for homeless campers, maybe it should get evicted, too?

Small businesses will foot the bill to the tune of $30K if NIMBY’s get their way on Haight Recycling

For all the folks out there that call City Hall and try to pass off lies, here is some hard core truth.  Danny Glover has lived in the Haight since 1957 and he supports the recycling center.  Mr. Glover recycles at HANC and he is quite surely NOT homeless.

Opponents of the recycling center are spending their days yelling at City Officials for considering any relocation of recycling services in the area.  They claim there are NO neighbors that support this recycling facility.  This is an outright lie.  We have also learned that our opponents are trying to stop all relocation efforts -they have a vendetta against any recycling service HANC provides in the area and want to prevent the nonprofit from conducting their legal and state-certified business altogether.  This is not just a park issue any more, rather a concerted effort to use public land and public funds to serve a few private citizens, leaving recycling laws and small businesses in a major lurch.

Those private citizens who want to remove the state-mandated recycling in the park do not plan to pay the tens of thousands of dollars it will cost business owners to make up for the lack of recycling they will be faced with.  As the Small Business Commission works furiously to address the major shortage of recycling in San Francisco, these private citizens are demanding that their desires be placed before city and state laws as well as the fate of important green jobs.

Make your opinion count.  Call and write Mayor Ed Lee and demand that he not give in to NIMBY policies when desperately needed public services are the ultimate cost.  Be sure to let him know that you are a citizen and your voice matters. mayoredwinlee@sfgov.org

Stay tuned for information about upcoming press rallies to demonstrate against this eviction that will cost local businesses a ton of money.
