“Si se puede!” A new proposal that would extend due process to all San Franciscans, including non citizens, was the center of heated debate at City Hall this week.

City activists are gearing up for a lively discussion on the gentrification of the Mission Monday. The event comes as some in the community fight to keep out the high-end retailer Jack Spade from moving into the neighborhood. The meeting will be held Monday at the Center for Political Education 522 Valencia at 6 p.m.
