Tech Hate in the People's Republic of San Francisco
Protesters in San Francisco's Mission District blocked tech buses for nearly an hour Thursday morning in San Francisco, tossing scooters into the street.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the activists set off smoke bombs, chanted “we are unstoppable, another world is possible,” and carried signs that read “Techsploitation Is Toxic,” and “Sweep Tech Not Tents.” The last chant directed against the removal of homeless sleeping in tents on sidewalks, thus suggesting a total lack of understanding of how urban development helps all (See: What the Gentrification Haters Don't Get)
The anti-tech protest was coordinated by technology aided apps and social media. Think about that for a nanosecond.
