I saw this “No on L” poster in a bus shelter at Mission and Silver in San Francisco. Somehow I don’t think this was an officially purchased Clear Channel advertising campaign. It refers to Proposition L in the upcoming San Francisco election, and it mentions San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom and George Gascón, Chief of the San Francisco Police Department.
The SF Appeal description of Prop L:
Another controversial proposal, supported by Newsom and police Chief George Gascon, would give police more authority to crack down on homeless people disturbing pedestrians on city sidewalks.
Proposition L would ban sitting or lying on a public sidewalk between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., with exceptions for disabled persons using wheelchairs, parades and protests, lawful sidewalk businesses, or waiting in a line.
Sidewalks Are For People is a group that supports a No vote on Prop L. There’s no indication they are involved with the poster. But yesterday they held a rally at 16th Street BART with Reverend Billy of the Church of Life After Shopping.
