Workshop on Gentrification, Colonialism, and Reparations
A one hour presentation with video from the African People's Socialist Party, 30 minute Q&A and facilitated discussion.
GENTRIFICATION IS COLONIALISM GENTRIFICATION IS GENOCIDE
Participants will study the concrete events and history of colonialism and gentrification in America and New York from the perspective of the black poor and working class. We will also look at the projects of APEDF and Black Star Industries which are fighting back and concretely reversing gentrification by seizing community control and community organization in the black community. This process is know as creating dual or contending power, we will define what that means and how progessive European and north american "white" people are called on to participate in genuine solidarity with the colonized.
