Movement for Justice in El Barrio Denounces 125th St. Gentrification Plan

Movement for Justice in El Barrio | March 10th, 2008—Today, the City Planning Commission will vote on a rezoning plan that seeks to gentrify 125th St. and the surrounding blocks from Broadway to Second Avenue. Although we are not directly affected by this proposal, as Movement for Justice in El Barrio, community members of East Harlem, we are against the plans that the city government has to displace poor families from their homes. The project that they have for 125th St. would displace humble, poor, and African American families from their homes and from the space that belongs to their community. This project would allow for buildings of 29-stories, create 2,000 market rate condominiums, and possibly push out 70 small businesses and their 975 workers. We know that with all this “development,” the rent prices will continue to go up and low-income families will be pushed from their homes and be forced out of their neighborhood. more...  1 Comments

March 8, IWD: This Moment and The Oppression of Women

Rosa harris | The oppression of women is rooted in horrific silences and self-righteous conservatisms. The oppressions festers behind the walls and traditions of family “privacy.” It is wreathed in shame and custom. It is denied as it is so vigorously enforced by state and church and male fists. It is harvested in the great global productive loops of sweatshops and field labor — from endless days of labor at sewing machines and assembly lines, in the nights of domestic slavery and in lifetimes sacrificed to enforced childbearing. more...  0 Comments

In Ha'aretz interview Leviev "spins" protests against his companies' settlements

Adalah-NY | Issa Mikel, a spokesperson for Adalah-NY - the group that has organized eight protests outside Leviev’s Manhattan jewelry store since it opened last November - commented, “Leviev’s responses were disingenuous and troubling. Leviev neglected to mention that his company Leader is building the settlement of Zufim, that he is a major donor to a company that acquires Palestinian land for settlements, and that all Israeli settlements violate international law. Leviev also portrayed his company’s monopoly over Gaza’s fuel supply as somehow charitable. Finally, as independent human rights activists, we challenge Leviev to provide evidence to support the completely false accusation he made that we have any relationship with or are “funded by business competitors.”
