Livestream OF: Gentrification, Colonialism, and Reparations

January 28, 2018 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Sunday, January 28th from 6 to 8 pm EST we will be going LIVE to bring you this dynamic workshop on Gentrification, Colonialism, and Unity Through Reparations presented by Utopia School!

A one hour presentation with video from the African People’s Socialist Party, 30 minute Q&A and facilitated discussion.

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 known 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.

GENTRIFICATION IS COLONIALISM GENTRIFICATION IS GENOCIDE
