Threats posted in area United Nations Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing Leilani Farha has noted for 'systemic cruelty'.
La Cartita (01/22/2018) --- United Nations Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing Leilani Farha declared to the East Bay Express that she observed conditions of 'systemic cruelty'. The city of Oakland has issued Tuff Sheds to appease a tiny fragment of the homeless population. Ultimately, the crisis stems from a refusal to control price elasticity in housing.
In a research visit to Oakland, California, the UN representative found conditions that were truly appaling in Oakland's homeless encampments. Everywhere in the city tents can be observed. Some encampments, like the one located on Sixth and Castro, were more established than others. Presumably, these were zones that the general public has begun to express support for the homeless. Rent is extremey high in the Bay Area.
Silicone Valley companies, like Ask.com, can literally be seen from the encampments. Attacks on shuttle buses ferrying employees to and from work were attacked by pellet guns on the 280 freeway.
In the Bay, discontent is high with Silicone Valley. Tech companies have traditionally made use of regressive taxation policies to set up headquarters in areas prone to price inflation in housing. Recently, shuttle buses carrying Google and Apple employees were attacked with pellet guns.
