#gentrification

I used to live across the street from this building. It was once a building filled with #latino families that mysteriously burned down in the middle of the night. One month later, a newly renovated building with all new tenants. The harsh reality of #gentrification here in #nyc Watching that fire blaze will forever be ingrained in my memory.

Is time running out for malls and retail stores? Salvador Dali pieces on display at Oakridge Centre...my old stomping grounds when I was a high school student. The Persistence of Memory. Globalisation. Gentrification. Disruption. Time melts away.

There was quite a few amazing quotes from the speakers during the Real Time Chicago lecture today which focused on how infrastructure impacts the communities around it. "Who actually benefits from what is being built?" "Let's strategize first instead of being retroactive." "We don't want to force people out with change"" #infrastructure #Chicago #greatcitiesinstitute #cuppa #uic #gentrification​ #parks

Still thinking over how powerful it was to help organize and March for the 1st ever Brooklyn-wide march against gentrification, racism, & police brutality. The energy, the legacy grassroots groups, the music, the life long residents and non-native NYRS that refuse to allow this city to become a monoculture for white and rich marched 7 miles from Barclays to Bushwick. That's hundreds of people marching through the streets at rally points where we heard from the people that truly give New York its meaning and culture. .
.
The Corporate, Police, Realestate machine think they have power, they don't, they only have exploitation & complicity, you can only exploit some if most are silent, silence = violence.
.
.
However, as more and more people in America & the world wake up their consciousness to the values of humanity and take their communities back from the corporate state, we remember exploitive power is temporary and that the power of the people is never temporary. .

Global round-up: imagine an arts-focused urban village in a major world capital, created from upcycled materials and featuring circus studios, a nightclub, refugee housing and an on-site patisserie?
.
Introducing #holzmarkt, a newly-opened precinct of riverside Berlin reclaiming the dialogue of creative, inclusive community spaces on an unprecedented scale.
.
Distressed by the forward march of #gentrification, a collective of passionate individuals proposed an alternative to high-rise commercial construction in the former industrial area.
.
Through innovative financial backing solutions, a new vision for the area was rolled out – such is the power of an idea and the commitment of a team.
.
Never underestimate the power of what can be achieved with a brilliant idea – could yours be the next creative #gamechanger? 🌟

She's waiting for you to level up... She's waiting for you to #listen to her
She's waiting for you to unlearn #sexism
She's waiting for you to join her on the search for #knowledge... but you aren't ready to sacrifice your guy time for studying your #history, so how will you ever study herstory.... You need to stop taking #drugs, you need to stop #smoking poison, you need to STOP BEING SO NEGATIVE, you need to get your sh*t together, you need to stop being a #hypocrite, we all are, the irony is I'm going to tell you that you need to stop because I love you more than you #love yourself right now.
You need to #smile more. You need to stop having sex recreationally; it should be procreative and regenerative. Otherwise it's just #destruction.
You need to stop calling toxic junk-food and animal flesh food.
She's waiting for you to care about your culture.
She's waiting for you to tell her that you love her.
She is screaming out for the depth of the ocean, but you keep skipping in puddles.
She needs you to #support her business ventures, as much as you support the corporate interests in the #gentrification of the area where your people live.
She needs you to trust her.
She needs you to #fight for her as she fights for you every time you need her, she is there. She needs you to #support your #children.
She needs you to be an example.
She needs you to make #love to her like she is the only woman on the planet She needs you to care about our future
She needs you, as does your culture, as do the children, as does the planet, but it all starts with her...
