315 Bonair Siding, Stanford, CA.

Yesterday the police were called because protesters were invading an office. Today they are going there because protesters are using the bathrooms.

Maybe someone could drop off a couple of port-a-potties for them as a good gesture.

It looks as though ABM is doing ok.
