Monday, June 8, 2015: Fighting Gentrification in Oakland

Prioritzing Affordable Housing in Oakland

In this segment we look at the fight against gentrification in Oakland after activists successfully fought back the sale of public land to developers in the Lake Merritt area of downtown Oakland.
Lisa Dettmer of KPFA Women's Magazine records and interviews live on the scene at the Oakland Council meeting and rally last month. The successful delay of the sale was led by Eastlake United for Justice and several allied groups. More info at Save the E 12th Street Parcel for the People.
