Banksters Demand Black Removal as a Condition of Urban Investment
“Katrina left no doubt about the intentions of the folks who run this country, the financial class,” said BAR executive editor Glen Ford, speaking at a Socialist Action forum in Hartford, Connecticut. “The goal is to drastically reduce the Black populations of the cities,” because “the very presence of large numbers of Black people depresses the value of urban assets.” The mayor of Hartford, a mostly Black and Latino city, wants to build a $60 million baseball stadium as a centerpiece of development. However, such schemes are ultimately intended to bring in whites and displace Blacks and browns, as a “prerequisite” for substantial corporation investment in the future, said Ford, at Urban Hope Refuge Church.”

In an emergency response to oppose Israel’s collective punishment of Palestinians over 50 people from a broad range of groups rallied in Hartford Monday at rush hour.
With out clear evidence following the murder of three Israeli youth, Israel unleashed attacks on Palestinians including a massive bombing campaign of Gaza, 400 arrests in the West Bank, the lynching of Mohammad Abu Khudair, and the beating of his cousin.
The current campaign of Israeli terror is nothing new. Israel’s military is funded to the tune of 3 billion US tax dollars each year. And with that money Israeli soldiers or settlers have killed a Palestinian youth or child every three days for the last 13 years.
On Thursday we’d like to encourage everyone to attend ANSWER’s Rally against Israel’s collective punishment of the Palestinians.
