The way we occupy now: San Francisco occupation of a vacant building requests “drive-by fooding” because cops won’t let food in

I fired up Twitter this morning and found out about something pretty insane happening a few blocks from my apartment in San Francisco’s Tenderloin.

Occupy SF protesters have apparently taken over a vacant building owned by the Catholic diocese. The police blockading the occupation of 888 Turk Street aren’t allowing food past the barricades, so occupiers are asking that people drive by in cars and throw food into the building.

A sign with a line from the Lord’s Prayer reads “Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses.” I guess both clauses are meant to be taken literally.

Watch hashtags #sfcommune and #888turk.
