Left Forum 2012 Multiple Displacements: Neoliberalism, Gentrification, and Resistance in China, Chinatown and Beyond with Sam Stein
The left frequently refers to gentrification in the context of neoliberalism and the housing crisis in United States. However, land grabs are occurring all over the world for the purpose of "economic development." This panel will explore how local processes of gentrification interconnect with neoliberal capitalism by making connections between struggles against displacement in Chinatown of New York City and in China, looking at issues such as labor, housing, and migration in a global context. This is Part 1 of a two-part panel on Organizing Asian Communities, organized by CAAAV.
