PROLOGUE
By Gihan Perera, Miami Workers Center
For decades, our cities have been under attack. Since the 1960s, urban renewal programs have literally removedcommunities of color from major urban centers throughout the United States, including 1,600 black neighbor-hoods from San Francisco to Miami and dozens of cities in between.
1
These cities have been shaped and reshapedby cycles of government intervention and real estate speculation. Throughout these cycles, vulnerable communi-ties have been displaced, and have fought for their right to stay.Today, new economic policies have transformed these cycles of displacement into a more entrenched form of mar-ket-driven gentrification. While government officials and corporate speculators may not operate with the sameexplicit intention of wholesale dislocation as in the days of urban renewal, the policies that fuel global finance-driven development have similar impacts on these vulnerable communities.
