Dispatches Against Displacement: understanding and resisting gentrification

program date: 
Mon, 10/13/2014
Joe Clement talks with James Tracy, author of "Dispatches Against Displacement: field notes from San Francisco's housing war". They consider what gentrification is as an economic and by extension racialized form of domination, how different cities experience gentrification differently, and real world strategies for fighting back and protecting housing from market forces. James will be speaking at Reading Frenzy books off of N Beech and Mississippi at 6pm on Sunday the 19th, where there'll be a community discussion about fighting displacement.

Well-read Red: Gentrification, Class Domination, and Racism

program date: 
Mon, 10/13/2014
Frann Michel reads from an essay by Gavin Mueller in Jacobin, as well as from other sources, to argue that gentrification is not simply a cultural change in a neighborhood, but instead is driven by economic forces and backed by state power.   But those forces can be collectively opposed, and alternatives proposed, as evidenced in the global--and local--Right to the City movement. You can also read Frann's commentary. 8:54 minutes (8.15 MB)

Public Health and Social Spending

program date: 
Mon, 10/13/2014
Bill Resnick talks with Dr. Walter Tsou about the importance of public health. They consider  how our social spending priorities, over determined by war and market competition, and in that vein the private medical insurance regime, undermine our public health and leave us vulnerable to epidemics like Ebola.

Dr. Walter Tsou is a past president of the American Public Health Association and former health commissioner of Philadelphia. He is a founding member of the National Board of Public Health Examiners and a board adviser to Physicians for a National Health Program.  Dr. Tsou is also the president of Philadelphia Physicians for Social Responsibility. 14:51 minutes (13.59 MB)
