Four Seas desperate - People stop bulldozer and force a citywide vote on I-Hotel! [handbill]

San Francisco: the Committee, 1977. 8.5x14 inch handbill, mimeographed in English on one side and Chinese on the other; horizontal fold crease, minor edge soiling.

Dated Sept. 11, 1977, the leaflet announces that after the forced eviction of the I-Hotel, protesters managed to stop a bulldozer and disassemble the scaffolding that had been erected to dismantle the building. Calls on readers to attend a rally to re-open the building for low income and elderly residents. Four Seas was the development company that had purchased the site (and ended up going bankrupt, not having foreseen the organized resistance to its plans).
