Podcast #30 – The dispossessing effect of gentrification with Christian Noakes

In November 2020 an online article found its way to me by Associate Editor at Peace, Land and Bread, Christian Noakes called ‘Displacement of the Dispossessed: Community Development Under Capitalism’.

The way it deconstructed gentrification and its lexicon, re-presenting it to be the pernicious and insidious process it is is remarkable. It’s a must read for anyone who looks around them, particularly in urban areas (though not confined to them), and is frustrated at the abundance of bland, unimaginative, speculative development they see, and in particular for anyone who feels they have a diminishing, what David Harvey calls, ‘right to the(ir) city’.
