On the night of May 3 a few surveillance cameras were taken down from the unfinished developments they were attached to in the Mantua neighborhood, just north of University City in Philadelphia. Removing plastic cylindrical cameras is not hard, grabbing and pulling down or using a long stick is enough to knock one down quickly.

On Tuesday night survey stakes were pulled up at a proposed townhouse development off N. Williams Ave in North Portland. This is an small act of solidarity with the uprising in Baltimore carried out in an effort to highlight the relationship between gentrification and the perpetuation of white supremacy, police repression, and displacement. The dispossessed of Baltimore are not alone in their desire to strike out against a society that is intolerable.

We noticed an OCF Realty car parked in a gentrifying neighborhood in West Philadelphia. OCF Realty is actively furthering gentrification in multiple neighborhoods and has been the target of anti-gentrification actions in the past.
We went out one night last week and slashed two of the car's tires. This took under two minutes.
