Article, "Gentrification and the White Left" Stirs Debate

Umar ben-Ivan Lee | (from the Open Newswire): "If you are moving into a predominantly minority area that has been made "safe" by a few earlier white faces and your parents or family money is helping pay your rent you are a gentrifier. If you are seeking to change the culture of that area like we are seeing in Red Hook, Crown Heights and Bushwick you are a gentrifier and cultural imperialist. It does not matter if you are a liberal or a leftist; a gentrifier is a gentrifier. Let the white left take responsibility because gentrification has belonged almost exclusively to them." more...  63 Comments

yippies and the repukelikkkan convention

aron kay | COMMUNIQUE FROM YIPPIE! INTERNATIONAL FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE EMAIL: millionyippiemarch@pieman.org Yippies and other assorted peace activists will be converging on New York City during the month of August to protest the coronation of George Dumbya Bush at the Republican National Convention..... We are coming to NYC to petition our "government" in redress of grievances as guaranteed in the Constitution... We demand peace in Iraq, peace in the war on drugs and justice here at home and abroad..... Unfortunately Mayor Mike Bloomberg and the Parks Department are procrastinating on the idea of permits to march and assemble peacefully....For example, they denied a permit to the United for Peace and Justice to rally in Central Park....Furthermore a permit was denied to the Yippies and the John Lennon-Abbie Hoffman Memorial Camporee to camp out in the city's parks...... Therefore we must act as the whole world will be watching!!! We will bring the struggle to Mayor Bloomberg's doorstep (in the tradition of Bob Dylan's "Bringing It All Back Home"). On Sunday, August 22, 2004, a Yippie! Tea Party will be held in front of Bloomberg's mansion located at 79th street and 5th avenue starting at 8 pm. David Peel of the Lower East Side and others will provide the entertainment while tea, coffee, juice, donuts (for cops and protesters) and pies will be served..... This is the prelude to a campout location which will be announced during the Convention....Also a welcome center will be set up in Tompkins Square Park before, during and after the Convention along with a Yippie! soup kitchen. PS: On Friday May 7, 2004, the Mayor's office was made aware of plans for the Tea Party!!! Free Our Attorney Lynne Stewart and all political and drug war prisoners!!! more...  0 Comments
