Occupy SF activists put the mostly moribund movement back in the spotlight Sunday, taking over an unoccupied building owned by the Archdiocese of San Francisco with plans to establish a “permanent occupation” that would serve as shelter and a center for services for homeless people.
The activists entered the building at 888 Turk St. about 5:45 p.m. Sunday, after a peaceful rally and march from Union Square earlier in the day.
About 100 activists and supporters took up residence in the two-story commercial structure, believed to be a former music building of nearby Sacred Heart Cathedral High School and located within sight of archdiocesan headquarters at St. Mary’s Cathedral.
Police, who had monitored the protesters’ actions all day, stood by as protesters entered the building, which had already been opened by other activists. Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak said the department was “still talking” to the building’s owner to determine the next step.
