Reclaim Gezi Gardens
Friday June 14th at 6pm
At Patricia’s Green, Octavia & Fell
Over 100 SFPD officers raided Gezi Gardens in the early hours of Thursday morning. One person fell from their tree sit after the police CUT THE ROPE holding them up, and fell from 30 feet in the air. Another person was beaten during their extraction. 7-9 were arrested. We believe significant injuries occurred, but the extent is still unknown, because the police cordoned off a 2 block radius from the park, and shoved and twisted arms and arrested people who were not even on the land, to keep them from witnessing or recording the police raid and arrests.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE RESPOND, AS A COMMUNITY, WITH MASS ACTION WHEN THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPEN TO OUR COMRADES.
Tell everyone you know: RECONVERGE TOMORROW, FRIDAY, 6PM at OCTAVIA AND FELL in San Francisco, and we will RECLAIM GEZI GARDENS.
In the meantime, support is needed at the ongoing vigil at Octavia and Fell Streets, and Gezi Gardeners encourage any and all autonomous direct action taken in an effort to liberate and reclaim the space.
Gezi Gardens is a former farm and community space at Laguna and Fell that was occupied by direct action on June 1st, in an effort to save it from developers of luxury apartments. This action was undertaken in solidarity with the struggle going on in Turkey.
