Broadside given to attendees at performance of You Make a Better Wall Than a Window: The Tour in San Francisco.

"Et quidem naturali iure communia sunt omnium haec: aer et aqua profluens et mare et per hoc litora maris...Flumina autem omnia, et portus, publica sunt: ideòque jus piscandi omnibus commune est in portu fluminibusque.  (By the law of nature these things are common to mankind: the air, running water, the sea, and consequently the shores of the sea...All rivers and ports are public; and therefore the right of fishing in a port, or in rivers, is in common.)

- Origin of the public trust doctrine, from a sixth century description of Roman law by Justinian


"Th(is) bill would declare, until January 1, 2094, certain parcels of real property denominated as the designated seawall lots, subject to certain specified conditions, are free from the use requirements of the public trust...The San Francisco Port Commission would be authorized to lease all or a portion of the designated seawall lots."

- California Senate Bill No. 815, Chapter 660, 2007
