Take that!

Nell Geiser | A federal program that funds social programs and building maintenance for public housing throughout the country may soon be slashed in half. Congressional aides told the Washington Post that President Bush’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2006 could cut the $4.7 billion in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) that go to city housing authorities by up to 50 percent, the first major cut in the program in its 30 years of existence. more...  0 Comments

The Housing Crisis: What needs to be done?

Steven Wishnia | New York City’s housing crisis is intense. The cost of housing is as central and oppressive a part of daily life as crime was 20 years ago. Everywhere you turn you hear people complaining about how much rent they have to pay, about not having enough space, or about bouncing around between sublets and awkward roommate situations. New Yorkers are up against two brutal realities: the rapaciousness of the city’s housing market and the political power of real estate. more...  0 Comments

Whose Side Are They On?

Steven Wishnia | Despite the intensity of the crisis over the last 20 years, few politicians have made it a major issue. In fact, many who were once fiercely pro-tenant became remarkably tame when they ran for mayor. Former City Councilmember Ruth Messinger, who in 1988 sponsored a bill for commercial rent control, was largely quiet on the issue in 1997 when she ran against Rudolph Giuliani, even though the rent-control laws were expiring that year and Giuliani’s record was abysmal. In 2001, Democratic candidate Mark Green tried to prove his centrist credentials by telling The New York Times that he would support high-rent decontrol, a 1990s loophole in the law that lets inflation eat away at the number of regulated apartments. more...  0 Comments

Militants Rise Again

newswire | Hours after the main protests along the inaugural route, 150 young anarchists poured out of a punk show in the Adams Morgan neighborhood carrying torches and smashing up banks, police cars and a D.C. police substation. The incident was the third reported clash between anti-authoritarians and police during the inauguration. Discussion about the return of militant tactics flared across the Indymedia network, particularly at Using an ‘open-publishing’ system that doesn’t track the IP addresses of users, hundreds of people debated the significance of political militancy and the role of anarchists. The following excerpts are edited for clarity. —JB more...  0 Comments
