Public meeting: Capitalism and the unlivable city
21 June, 2016
Brown Street Hall, 8-10 Brown St, Newtown
Socialist Alternative Club
The modern city is presented as a gleaming wonderland - but only if you're rich. Otherwise, the capitalists' paradise is increasingly our hell - a wasteland, devoid of public space, where gentrification pushes the working class further and further out, struggling to keep up with the costs of housing and transport, and any resistance is met with police thuggery.
This same story is playing out around the world. Join us for a discussion of the forces driving this process, that are driving resistance as well.
