Here is some recent news coverage on the beginnings of gentrification coming to the northwest Bronx:

Mom-and-pop stores across from the Kingsbridge Armory are getting iced out of biz (NY Daily News)

“That type of letter is not a renewed-lease-letter; it’s a put-people-out letter,” said Christian Ramos, the vice president of the Kingsbridge Road Merchants Association.

EXCLUSIVE: Amid Re-development of Kingsbridge Armory, Rents To Double For Some In August (Norwood News)

“It’s frustrating. You don’t know if you’re coming or going,” said Bass, who feels as though it’s a type of legal eviction. “That’s just giving us three weeks to increase our rent, make a decision, get out, stay. This is really horrible. And these are families trying to stay.”

The world’s largest ice rink complex is coming — but many local businesses likely won’t be there to see it.

Tenants say a new landlord is starting to double their rents because the Kingsbridge Armory is reopening as a huge ice skating center in a few years, and property values are already starting to skyrocket.

This is what we’re doing to stop it: People Power Movement Fighting Gentrification in the Bronx

Pace Copy Center is one of the businesses in Kingsbridge who cannot afford their rent being doubled next month, This is all due to the new redevelopment of the Kingsbridge Armory into the world’s largest ice skating center. #PPMpeoplepower

The People of Brazil Need Food, Not FIFA!

Statement of Solidarity by the People Power Movement-Movimiento Poder Popular

July 8, 2014


As the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup kicked off in Brazil this year, millions of Brazilians have been redirecting their national fervor from sports to politics. In Brazil, home to the most successful national football team in the history of the FIFA World Cup, victory will be judged not on the field, but in the streets.

In cities like Brasília, São Paulo, and Rio de Janeiro, cries ring not of GOAL! but of Nao Vai Ter Copa!/There Will Be No Cup! People are kicking tear gas cannisters instead of soccer balls. Gunshots and rubber bullets have replaced fireworks. Cheers, chants, banners, and graffiti echo political demands. The World Cup overflows with blood. The nostalgically unifying game of soccer has been transformed into a power struggle between the people and the state, with the latter rigging the game so that they have men in blue uniform blocking the goal from one goal post to the other. Two teams. One country. Who will prevail?

This is the reality for the wretched of Brazil, who are facing racist and elitist repression in the midst of a growing militarized police state that has imposed red card penalties onto local residents who humbly play by the rules. Sudden violent evictions have…

now that Brazil just got DESTROYED in the World Cup losing 7-1 in their own country, read my latest article in the form of a People Power Movement - Movimiento Poder Popular's statement of solidarity with the people of Brazil protesting against FIFA's racist and elitist World Cup.

if any of you know someone in Brazil who is organizing against the World Cup plz plz PLZ share this with them so they know they have support from the people of the U.S. or just reblog forever until someone from Brazil sees this!

Ya’ll think i’m playing. Here is proof that gentrification is heading to the Bronx, and the new Kingsbridge Armory ice skating center is accelerating this. Our landlord wants to charge us $45 more per month for “improvements” to the building. We have 30 days to respond, in English.
Tell me, how many working class tenants in this building speak or understand English? How many have the time to find out how to understand this and fill it out? How many even know that they have the right to say NO to this bullshit??! We have a lot of work to do. We’ll be doing work in my building, let me know if you wanna help us fight this.

You should contact the Crown Heights Tenants Union. They’re a grassroots movement that recently started in Brooklyn and has unionized over 40 buildings.
They can help you fight this and organize your building as well.
On June 30th (Monday), the organization is hosting a training event at 7pm in 727 Classon.
You can contact them by email (crownheightstenantunion@gmail.com) or through their Facebook Page. There website is crownheightstenantunion.org


Thank you so much for this info. We started talking to tenants today and we are having a meeting this Wed. about how to deal with this rent increase request. We’re planning to send a couple of our people to the Monday session and see how we can connect with Brooklyn folks. The CHTU sounds dope and i’m feelin their politics!

"In the end, you're just a lazy black dude from a lazy black family. Your mother could have worked somehow...welfare was easier. You could work full-time, but welfare is easier. It's unbelievable to me that you believe anything you believe because you have to be willfully ignorant to be this pathetic. Wow. If you're wondering why our country is so fucked up...YOU'RE the problem. Find some better role models. Might I suggest Barack Obama, he actually had to put some work in." by Anonymous

"OMFG, the kicker is that you want to be a school counselor!?!?!?!?!?! You will only be able to get a job in a black school where you can teach the kids to start gangs...your background doesn't qualify you to do any real work. Seriously, you need to reevaluate...you realize that you WILL BENEFIT from black racism when you are hired to work in a school because ONLY a black racist would hire you...you will benefit from something you claim doesn't exist. HAHA, your stupidity amuses me." by Anonymous
