SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Occupy San Francisco protesters are teaming up with local legal and housing rights organizations Saturday to spread their message to a handful of local neighborhoods.

Members of Occupy SF Housing, including Occupy SF protesters and groups such as San Francisco Tenants Union, Coalition on Homelessness and Causa Justa, will meet at four city locations today to protest banks, predatory landlords and organizations “contributing to the degradation of the 99 percent’s ability to live, work, raise families and grow old in San Francisco,” according to a statement.

From there, protesters are set to meet at Justin Herman Plaza at 3 p.m.

“On December 3, we will continue the process of expanding the occupation with four city neighborhoods at the forefront of the struggle for affordable housing,” the statement reads.

Those areas include the Bayview District, where the first group of attendees will hear speakers at 11 a.m., and the Tenderloin, where protesters coming from events in the Mission, Castro and Bayview districts will gather at 1 p.m. before marching to Justin Herman Plaza.
