Bronx tenants in Kingsbridge Heights meet to organize against rent hikes and gentrification

Bronx, New York - On Thursday night, August 14, members of a newly formed tenants association held a second meeting with support from the People Power Movement-Movimiento Poder Popular (PPM-MPP) to discuss their strategy to fight a proposed rent increase at 2800 University Avenue that would attack the building’s working-class residents.  The landlord’s application for a Major Capital Improvement (MCI) rent increase attempts to justify a permanent rent hike on the basis of repairs, but many doubt the repairs will benefit the entire building.

At Thursday’s meeting, Maria Maldonado, president of the tenant association and longtime resident of 2800 University Avenue, and Jay Espy, a PPM-MPP organizer who grew up in the building, facilitated the discussion among 20 tenants in attendance. During the meeting, tenants raised concerns about much-needed repairs and safety violations that the landlord has failed to address in the building. They also strategized with organizers about taking collective actions to stop the unfair MCI rent increase.

“We can’t trust the Democrats, and we can’t trust the Republicans. The only people we can trust is ourselves,” said Espy, explaining that neither Democratic nor Republican mayors have prevented rent hikes that harm so many poor and working class New Yorkers. He placed the MCI rent increase in his building within the context of city-wide gentrification, a process that displaces working-class people of color from their communities.

Additionally, Espy blamed the redevelopment of the nearby Kingsbridge Armory into the world’s largest ice skating rink, a project that has already enticed landlords in the area to raise rent for small business owners and tenants on Kingsbridge Road. As a result, Espy encouraged the tenants to unify and organize themselves to take collective action instead of relying on politicians and landlords who do not share their interests.

Espinosa’s words resonated with the other tenants at the meeting. Sharon Cooper, vice president of the tenant association and also a long-time resident in 1978, captured the mood of the evening: “My grandmother always said: ‘united we stand, divided we fall.”

 

The People Power Movement-Movimiento Poder Popular is a democratic people’s organization dedicated to educating, agitating, and organizing for Popular Control of our schools, workplaces, housing, transportation, policing, levels of government, and all areas that affect our lives, to achieve Fundamental Social Change.

I’m not tryna be offensive at all but…

I believe certain things in the Bible but when ppl use it in arguments to back up they own theory I just can’t take them serious.

Because to me, the Bible was written by men and their own interpretations of what they believe God was telling them.

Not only…

also, it’s funny how dudes will tell women how they need to be a proverbs 31 wife but conveniently forget that christ told men to love their wives as he loved the church.
a lot of people take what they want from the bible and ignore whatever they don’t agree with…

That is exactyly how I feel about some of the messages in there. How do I know if after King James edited/translated the Bible he didn’t remove (well he did remove) certain books and passages that are vital. Idk I was telling my mom about this and she just said question the bible is the devil messing with your head smh

everything’s the devil. If you’ve ever noticed, anything a human being couldn’t yet understand in our world has been considered devil work or witch craft. Midwives who did well in helping women give birth with minor pain were so alien to men that they were deemed Witches and burned and exiled.

I don’t believe a higher power made us with the capacity to ask, just so we summarize our curiosity as “the devil at work.”
But then again, I no longer follow Christian/Catholic/Baptist beliefs as strongly as I once did. But it’s just food for thought.

so much sweet tea spilled i love this whole post yees

The long and ugly tradition of treating Africa as a dirty, diseased place

tupsyturvy:

We had something similar in the evening standard today - UK Unis complaining of the ‘influx of students from ebola hit areas and the chance of the spread of the disease’ As if the countries are completely over run with diseased individuals.

One uni was even quoted as saying they’ll have to test all students to contain the infection. Because yes, ALL the countries don’t have tests in place or you think they also want to spread the disease further? KMFT

I swear these journalists  and westerners generally really ain’t shit.
