Elderly couples eviction spurs protest in San Francisco

An elderly Asian couple in San Francisco is at the center of an eviction fight Tuesday.

The Lee family lives on a fixed-income in a rent-controlled apartment in the Polk Gulch neighborhood of the city.

Their building was sold recently and the owner has evicted all the other tenants -- which is legal.

The Lees have been unable to find other affordable housing and are appealing the eviction.

An all-day protest is underway to highlight the case and point out the lack of affordable housing in San Francisco.
