San Francisco Tenants Demand Protection from Eviction

In San Francisco, groups of demonstrators gathered on the steps of City Hall to demand more rights for both tenants and landlords. Supporters of the bill say that landlords take advantage of current eviction laws and try to remove tenants for minor infractions in order to raise rent. Small property owners say that it's hard to maintain a residence in San Francisco due to high taxes, and the inability to increase rents means they are unable to maintain their residences.
