Protesters gathered outside San Jose City Hall Monday night to pressure city council to pass a series of laws to protect the rights of renters.
The demonstrators want the San Jose City Council to pass a number of tenant protections at its meeting on Tuesday.
Silicon Valley Renters Rights Coalition and other community groups have even begun a hunger strike. They call it the “Fast for Renters’ Rights.”
Currently, landlords and property owners don’t need a reason to evict a tenant. This has happened about 2,000 times since 2010.
